A Nifty Sports Bottle To Have On Hand

Living in a smaller sized home, I often think about saving space and products that help me do that. It's not that we have too much stuff. Okay, maybe it is, but I like my stuff and I need to figure out how to store it without it disrupting my life too much. Come on, you have too much stuff too and know what I am talking about.

That's why I like things like the Home Yile Collapsible Sports Bottle. This thing is pretty nifty! It is a full 17 oz sports bottle with a carry strap and it collapses to take up less space when needed.

The bottle is made from platinum silicone that is non-toxic, BPA free, and safe to use with all kinds of liquids, or foods if you'd like. It is super easy to use and easy to carry around either with your hand around the bottle or by the nice wrist strap it has, which has a duel purpose.

The bottle has a hard plastic top and cap where you fill it with your beverage. The entire top screws off and then there is a smaller cap you screw on and off to drink from. It is liquid tight and you can turn it upside down, lay it on it's side and it still will not leak (if you have the lid screwed on correctly).  To help keep it sturdy, since silicone tends to have a lot of give to it, there is a hard plastic sleeve that helps the bottle always keep it's shape and to make it easier for you to grasp without squeezing it too hard.

The hard plastic sleeve moves up and down on the bottle, making it easy for you to adjust it to where it is the easiest for you to hang on to it. I like it in about the middle. That sleeve moves all the way to the top of the bottle when you want to collapse it. It is really easy to collapse it too. You need to unscrew the cap so the air can get out. Lay the bottle on it's side, making sure you have the little hook just under the lid centered with the opening on the sleeve. Roll up the bottle by pushing down on the bottom and rolling like you would a tube of toothpaste. Grab the wrist strap and fold it around the rolled up bottle. On the strap is a little plastic loop. Hook the loop on the bottle and then close the cap again. All collapsed and easy to store.

This is great for taking on a camping trip, stashing in the car, or keeping with your picnic supplies. I really like it. There is no transfer of flavor from the silicone to your beverage, whether hot or cold. When it is filled with hot water or coffee, it becomes a nice hand warmer. Filled with something cold, it can be a great ice pack too. Oh, and you can freeze things in it. Pretty nifty!

It is easy to wash. You can hand wash it or toss it into the dishwasher on the top rack. Sometimes silicone will have an odd smell when you first get it. Rinsing it with baking soda will help remove that smell and will not harm the silicone.

I think this is a great sports bottle and it will come in very handy for us often!
