What is 18/8 Stainless Steel?

Pachamama water bottles are constructed from high-quality, 18/8, food-grade stainless steel. The numbers stand for the percentages of chromium and nickel in the steel, 18% and 8% respectively. Chromium increases the metal’s hardness and nickel gives it strength. Together they also make stainless steel highly resistant to stain or rust.

Stainless steel is easy to clean, durable, inert and sanitary. That’s why it’s the material of choice among the food processing, dairy and brewing industries.’

Can I put hot water in my water bottle?

Pachamama eco-friendly stainless steel bottles are intended for COLD BEVERAGES.

How do I clean and care for bottles?

We recommend washing the bottle by hand, using a solution of warm water and a little vinegar or baking soda. Please note the following facts about the bottles:

  • Don’t forget to wash the bottle thoroughly with soap and warm water before first use.
  • For consumable liquids only.
  • For tropical climates only: When washing, avoid immersing the bamboo part of the lid in water; instead clean with rubbing alcohol.
  • Take care when filling the bottle with carbonated beverages as it can build up pressure when sealed.
  • Do not drop the bottle on hard surfaces, especially when full.
  • Be mindful of significant changes in pressure within your bottle (i.e. freezing or heating when it contains liquid, transporting to higher or lower altitudes while sealed, etc.), which might cause it to rupture or leak.
