The Basics: How to Clean Your BlenderBottle Protein Shaker Cup

How to Clean a Shaker Bottle

As awesome as your BlenderBottle® shaker is, it won’t clean itself. And there’s nothing—we mean nothing—nastier than week-old protein shake. It’s time to learn how to properly clean your BlenderBottle® shaker cup.


ProSeries Odor-Resistant shaker cups make cleaning your shaker easier.


How to Clean Your Protein Shaker Bottle

  • Wash your BlenderBottle® shaker before initial use, and immediately after every use. Remember what we said about week-old protein shake? Our Bottle Brush with a built in straw brush can help with all the details. 

  • Most components of your BlenderBottle® shaker are top-rack dishwasher safe. The insulated BlenderBottle® Radian™ shaker is an exception—it should be hand washed.

  • Alternately, all bottles may be washed by hand in warm soapy water. Please note: BlenderBottle® shaker cups are not intended for use with hot or warm liquids. The secure seal of the bottles does not allow pressure to escape, therefore hot or warm liquids may cause the flip cap to open unexpectedly and spray contents.

  • The BlenderBall® wire whisk should be placed in the silverware bin.

  • If you have a white BlenderBottle® Radian™ shaker lid that looks off color, try scrubbing it with a wet wipe to clean it up.

How to Get the Smell Out of Your Shaker Bottle

Let’s say you accidentally leave a dirty BlenderBottle® shaker in your gym bag, locker, or car. You won’t be the first one to make this mistake. We’ve seen—and smelled—it all. Most BPA-free plastics are prone to retaining odors if not cleaned promptly after use. Try these tips for removing stubborn odors from your BlenderBottle® shaker:

  • Fill your BlenderBottle® shaker with a mixture of baking soda and vinegar and allow it to sit overnight, with the cap open.

  • Sprinkle a piece of newspaper with water, or place several drops of vanilla extract on a few paper towels. Crumple newspaper or paper towels and place inside your BlenderBottle® shaker. Screw on the lid and let the bottle sit for 24 hours, with the cap closed.

  • Place damp coffee grounds inside your BlenderBottle® shaker. Screw on the lid and allow the bottle to sit overnight, with the cap closed.

  • After cleaning your BlenderBottle® shaker, simply leaving the lid off and letting it air out can do wonders.
