Did you know that drinking water from a bottle that’s already been used is as bad for you as licking your toilet?

Scientific research proved that water bottles had more bacteria than the average toilet seat and we’re placing it on and in our mouths!

The germ-ridden bottles are caused by a lack of washing as you may assume putting water in the bottles must have kept them clean.

However, don’t give up on reusable bottles entirely as it helps the environment.

Fortunately, Astro Ulagam found there are things you can do to make your water bottles a little less disgusting.

1) Drink from stainless steel bottles

2) Avoid bottles with any awkward crevices and hard to reach spots.

3) Don’t forget to hand wash the bottles with care every day!
