I purchased the tall bottle for my daughter with high hopes from two well known brands. Sadly, I couldn’t be more disappointed. Always washed well, only ever held water. But it’s now filled with mould. The mould is incredibly tough to remove as the inside of the bottle isn’t easily accessible. The ring around the top of the bottle is also extremely hard to clean as you can barely squeeze a toothpick in it to scrape out the food & dirt from a 1 year old. Overall, impractical and disappointing.
Sorry to hear that you are disappointed with your Little Dutch Water Bottle.
Several members of our team actually use these with their own children and haven't had any problems with them at all. As we haven't heard of this issue before, we will pass this on to our suppliers so that they are aware and to see if there is a specific reason as to why you are experiencing this.
In the past (not with these bottles, but with other items we've struggled to clean around the home) pipe cleaners/bottle brushes have been really good to get into more challenging places to clean, perhaps try one of these and see if it helps?
We really pride ourselves on supporting our customers and should you have contacted us directly when this first occurred, we could have looked into helping you further with this. If you do need some further support from us - please let us know via email@example.com
Lovely looking bottle. But my daughter cannot open it herself as the button is too stiff (it’s hard for me to open it so I think a child would need to be 5-6yrs old before they’d have the finger strength). There is also a complicated valve system which looks like it won’t be very easy to keep clean.
