Looking after your jerry can

Cleaning 🧼

Immerse your water bladder in a mix of warm water and disinfectant (tablets, vinegar, bicarbonate or lemon juice) and leave to soak for 5 minutes.

Then rinse it in clean water. If you only use water in your water bladder, there's no need to disinfect it after each use. Deep cleaning with a disinfectant once every three months will be more than enough

Drying 💨

Remember to dry your water bladder thoroughly after each use. The easiest way to do this is to rinse it and then turn it upside down, keeping the mouth open.

Once dry, you can store it in your cupboard until your next outing which will help reduce the risk of mould developing.
