My main reason for getting one was I needed to pysch myself up to drink water several times a day without spending too much money on bottled water. In turn, this translates into less plastic bottles in landfills. Pretty cool, huh?
How does the carbon filter work?
Okay I picked this info up on the website. Carbons are basically positively-charged chemical absorbents, and while the water passes through the filter the negatively-charged impurities are drawn to the surface of the carbon granules and remain there. It's thus recommended to clean your Bobble filter with warm soapy water every so often help limit bacterial growth.
|I used my Bobble in Korea|
How to use:
1. Upon purchase, fill your Bobble halfway with regular tap water and screw on cap. Squeeze out all the water until it becomes clear. The dark particles are the excess carbon and they should just wash out easily.
2. After that, just refill your Bobble and then drink normally. Stash it in your luggage or bag for clean water on the go. That's it!
While going through immigration or travelling at the airport, I stash Bobble in my luggage and the flexible bottle is strong enough to resist pressure and added weight. Upon arrival at the hotel, I just give it a quick rinse, fill it up with tap, and I'm good to go. Please note that the carbon filter only filters out organic contaminants, it's not to be used where water is microbiologically unsafe.
This is probably my best purchase yet! What about you, any awesome purchases you want to share with me and my readers?
