Despite the endless warnings about the dangers of bacteria in old water bottles, I seem to continue to use the same ones over and over. It's pure laziness that has kept me from washing them out with soap after each use. I like to assume that since I only had water in them, I'm perfectly fine using the same bottle until it begins to smell strange. The truth is my husband and I train every day, we end up constantly overloaded with cheap water bottles in the sink, cupboards and workout bags; it's a serious pain.
FLEXR Sports has solved this issue with their BPA-free sports bottle. It includes a disposable and fully biodegradable liner that keeps the bottle as clean as the day you bought it. As an added bonus, I can use my flavored drinks without dealing with the vague after taste in my water in the coming weeks. The liner shrinks as the liquid is used reducing the sloshing issue and you can drink without tipping the bottle. I especially loved this feature on the bike where my eyes need to stay on the road.

The FLEXR bottle completely removed my need for additional bottles hanging around the house. I have a pack of liners that I keep in my gear bag and car and I'm completely in love with this bottle. The other day, I left my it in my spin class and didn't realize my mistake until they locked the door. Since I had Carbo Pro and Zip Fizz in the bottle, I would normally just call it a loss, unwilling to clean it out after it's been sitting for a few days. However, it bothered me enough to lose the bottle that I got someone to open the door for me a day later. I plan on hanging on to this bottle for a long time.
My experience with FLEXR was the main motivation in seeking them out as sponsors for our TriEdge-Kestrel Womens Team. I really wanted our women to experience these bottles and we're proud to call them one of the team's title sponsors.
