This Is Why You Need To Clean Your Stainless Steel Tumbler Lid
The other day I deep cleaned the lid for my stainless steel tumbler and I couldn’t believe what I saw.
I had never cleaned this part of my cup, but it was obvious that that was a mistake.
Since I know a lot of other anglers are using these cups like me, I put together this quick video to show you exactly how and why you need to clean your tumbler lids.

Many people overlook the rubber ring when cleaning their tumblers, but the area underneath these rings can get pretty nasty with mold and bacteria, so make sure to clean underneath the ring often.

Tony, your tip on Liquid IV changed our lives for the better, but it does make bottles prone to molding. White vinegar is the best thing for killing mold in insulated bottles and tumblers. We buy it in gallon jugs.
Thanks Phillip! I’ve gotten into the habit of cleaning my cups and lids throughly as soon as I am done with them rather then letting them sit (which typically causes a lot of the problems)
I have an Adventuridge tumbler with a lid that has a slide to open and close feature. Can’t figure out how to remove the slider for cleaning. I tried looking up company info but can’t find any help. Any thoughts?
Some lids may not have a removable cap or slide feature, so your best bet would be to soak them in warm soapy water or replace the lid if you notice any bad smell or colors around it.
Thanks for sharing such a great article with us. It is very informative.
How do I get coffee stains out of the white silicone gaskets on a Thermos travel mug? I’ve tried baking soda, vinegar, and Dawn liquid dish detergent, all to no avail. Or are they just permanent? Also, I’ve read that bleach ruins the silicone.
Hey Ken! I’m not too sure about that one. Coffee stains are a pain! You could possibly try cleaners that they use for coffee/espresso machines, but at that point you may be better off just purchasing a replacement gasket.
You can place the lids in the top rack of your dishwasher to sanitize them. Every few washes this might be a good idea. And replace those gaskets every so often.
Yep that can help every now and then, but it doesn’t quite get into the tight space between the lid and the seal. Always good to remove every now and then and give a good deep clean. Unless of course you mean to put them in the dishwasher after removing the seal.
Tony, my girlfriend is a germaphobe! I can’t tell you how many times I have come home and lids, seals and cups are drying on the counter! Yes, everyone should do it. If you use your cup for coffee with cream, man you need to clean it. Great to remind everyone. Tight lines and clean cups!
Haha thats a good thing!
Wow…just looked at my lids. So gross. Great tip! Thanks
No problem Richard!
