How should I clean my LifeStraw Peak Series Water Filter Straw?
We recommend regularly backwashing your personal water filter straw for optimal filter lifetime. Regularly blow air through your filter after drinking to keep the filter clean and prevent it from clogging. Close both caps when not in use.
When you're ready to put your filter away, we recommend rinsing both the bottom and top caps of your straw filter before storage.
For optimal disinfection, follow the instructions below:
Mix 1/4 teaspoon household bleach solution with 1-2 cups of water. Dip the filter into the bleach solution far enough so that the end is submerged in solution, and use the backwash accessory (or blow into your filter if using your Peak Series personal water filter straw) to push and pull the solution from the filter several times. Rinse with tap water.
