How do you clean the inside of a Yeti Cup?
Add 1/2 cup of vinegar and a teaspoon of dish soap to the Yeti cup. Then fill it up the rest of the way with hot water and let it soak. This will get rid of any funky smells and hard water buildup in your cup. You can now use a sponge to scrub and wash out the Yeti tumbler.
Can you bleach the inside of a Yeti Cup?
Bleach can cause permanent damage to your Yeti tumbler cup, so just try not to use it. The stainless steel will react to the bleach and it will get completely stained.
Why can't you wash a Yeti cup in the dishwasher?
Every YETI Rambler is made with rugged 18/8 stainless steel. This allows them to withstand hot water with ease. So even the high temperatures inside a dishwasher won't damage your YETI drinkware or reduce their ability to insulate.
To remove the coffee smell, just put one teaspoon baking soda in the tumbler and fill it with water. Let it sit at least 30 minutes (the longer, the better). You may have to repeat this process.
Why is my Yeti lid cloudy? Yeti lids that are clear or translucent plastic can sometimes get a cloudy appearance after you've had them a while. This is most likely due to excessive exposure to direct sunlight.
All Rambler® products can be hand-washed and are also dishwasher safe. If you're going the dishwasher route, just make sure everything goes where it should to get them as clean as possible.
Yeti Tumbler cups stop working when the vacuum seal is lost and air fills up the space between the inner and outer wall of the cup. This causes the cup to lose the majority of it's insulating properties and unfortunately there is no way to fix this issue, the cup will need to be replaced.
They Can Lose Their Vacuum Seal and Their Effectiveness
This doesn't happen extremely often but it can happen. Yeti cups work so well because there is a near vacuum between the outer and inner wall of the cup which heat struggles to get through, making it a great insulator.
It does show dirt easily, particularly on the lid texture. Fine otherwise.
And a few molds, in the right conditions, produce 'mycotoxins,' poisonous substances that can make you sick," according to the USDA. While the YETI name is being thrown around, this is a common problem with all tumblers that have removable seals, no matter the brand.
You can safely put boiling water in a Yeti tumbler cup or bottle without any issues. It's designed to handle extreme heats and won't get damaged. The boiling water will stay hot for 6+ hours, giving you hot tea or coffee all day long. So if you want to put some boiling water in your Yeti then go right ahead.
For a deep cleaning, the gasket and MagSlider magnet pop right off. Even better, they're all dishwasher safe. Remove gasket from the tumbler lid by using two fingers to pinch it on either side. This should make the gasket lift up from its groove.
Anything you've drank out of your Yeti that has a sugar base will hide in the crevices and cause a smell and bacteria build up over time. So don't be afraid to remove the plastic ring and thoroughly soak and clean it and it's area it is attached to.
The reason you can't freeze your Yeti cup is that as liquid cools it expands in all directions. The expansion can cause the stainless steel walls of the Yeti cup to deform and can sometimes also break the vacuum seal. If this happens your Yeti cup will no longer insulate properly.
To clean your stainless steel water bottle with baking soda, you'll want to start by making a paste with just two ingredients: water and baking soda. Use a bottle brush to spread the paste inside your bottle, then let it sit for about 15 minutes. Rinse with hot water and let the bottle air dry.
Legendary YETI durability doesn't stop inside your dishwasher; thanks to rugged 18/8 stainless steel construction, your YETI cup is safe and sound. And here's an extra tip to prolong the life of your YETI cup: before it goes in the dishwasher, remove the rubber lid gasket to prevent any grime build up in the lid.
Cleaning your cooler
First of all, clean your new cooler with soap and water prior to use. Soap and water is ideal for everyday cleaning as well. For tougher stains and odors, use a mixture of water and bleach (6:1 ratio) and scrub with a brush. Also, a high-pressure sprayer will clean even the most stubborn stains.
Soak the plastic item in a small bucket filled with vinegar for five minutes. If the cloudiness continues, sprinkle the item liberally with a layer of baking soda and immerse it in the vinegar bath. This should dissolve the film that clings to the plastic and creates that cloud.
We brewed some coffee and poured a steaming cup. On average, with the lid on, the YETI allowed coffee to stay warm for 5 to 6 hours at room temperature.
Insulated mugs & cups: Your favorite and most trusted travel mug might not be so airtight after a couple visits to the dishwasher. The same goes with plastic or metal insulated cups. If it dislodges during the cycle, it can clog the dishwasher drain and food disposal system and lead to damage with a hefty price tag.
Yeti tumbler cups and bottles can keep drinks cold for 6+ hours to 3+ days. The colder the drink starts, the more ice in the drink, the larger the drink volume and the outside temperature all play a role in how long a drink will stay cold for. 12-24 hours is a good estimate for iced water.
Yeti coolers can hold ice for 3-5 days with regular use (half filled with food/drinks etc) or can hold ice for 7-10 days when full of ice in ideal conditions.
Yeti tumblers are made of vacuum sealed stainless steel. The inside also has a copper plating to insulate against heat radiation and stainless steel itself is a poor conductor of heat. All of these elements combined with a plastic lid (another insulator) allow the tumblers to keep beverages cold or hot for so long.
You can safely put Yeti cups in the fridge without issue. They are designed to handle cold and hot temperatures. What you can't do is put them in the freezer. The way liquids expand as they freeze can put pressure on, and break the vacuum seal ruining your cup or bottle.
Truthfully, the number one reason Yeti costs so much is that it is branded to be an expensive luxury item. This company's idea is to make their product cool, appealing, high quality, and premium. They wanted to create all of these things so that people would have no problem with paying very high prices for the coolers.
The short answer is no; microwaving a Yeti is not safe. Yeti drinkware, including mugs, tumblers, jugs, and bottles, is made from high-quality 18/8 stainless steel. Steel, like aluminum or any other conductive metal, does not mix well with radiation emitted by microwaves.
