Not Ideal for Home Brewers: An OXO Good Grips 3 Piece Water Bottle Cleaning Set Review

I'm a runner, hiker, cyclist, and home brewer. Among all the bottles I use, the beer bottles are the most problematic. I elected to review the Good Grips 3 piece water bottle cleaning set in hopes I could clean out my recycled glass beer bottles, as the description didn't indicate if they could.

The dishwasher safe Good Grips 3 piece water bottle cleaning set, made in China, includes a long bottle brush, straw brush, and detail cleaner, and is ideal for cleaning plastic and metal water bottles, sports bottles, travel mugs, carafes, pitchers, and more. The tools have soft comfortable non-slip handles, two with notches for simple removal and hanging on the handy storage ring. The 13 inch long bottle brush features a .75 inch wide head and is long enough to clean out a 50oz (1.5L) bottle. Durable nylon bristles flex through narrow bottle necks to scrub inside of bottles without scratching. Additionally, the long straw brush is the perfect length to clean out straws up to 16" (41cm) long, plus The detail cleaner gets into tight spaces to wipe out crevices and threads inside of caps.

I tend to drink water in my water bottles and not sugary sports drinks or powder mix shakes so I usually just stick my plastic water bottles in dishwasher and move on. I haven't had an experience where I needed brushes to get them clean. However this 3 piece brush set would be a help if I needed a more thorough cleaning.

When it comes to brewing beer, my beer bottles and carboys are the two main difficult to clean items. The beer bottles generally require a quick rinse out, but every now and then I get a difficult bottle with something in it. My 1 gallon glass carboys are the bigger issue to clean, as debris just under the neck is difficult to clean without a tool. The bottle brush reaches this area nicely.

I'm not certain this bottle cleaning set is necessary, plus it doesn't clean empty glass bear bottles. However the bottle brush comes in handy with cleaning smaller carboys. There is probably a more economical alternative if you need a tool for this purpose. However if you really need a water bottle cleaning tool set, the Good Grips 3 piece water bottle cleaning set is sure to get the job done.

PROS:
Satisfaction guarantee
Dishwasher safe

CONS:
Will not work on beer bottles

Over the years I've gone though many sports water bottles. They are a great way of keeping hydrated, but all of them are really a pain to clean. The combination of narrow necks, deep bottles, and very narrow straws makes it almost impossible to do a good job cleaning them. Inevitably most of them become dirty enough that I need to throw them away. There are a few high-end water bottles out there that allow you to unscrew the bottom and thus get an easier access to the interior, but I prefer to get …
About this product

Wiki

The oxo gg water and sports bottle cleaning set includes a long bottle brush, straw brush and detail cleaner, to provide a thorough clean for any of your drinking buddies. The long bottle brush is perfect for cleaning the inside of bottles – even those with narrow necks. The brush features soft side bristles to clean bottle walls without scratching and short, firm bristles to thoroughly clean the bottom of bottles. For those hard-to-reach places, the straw brush easily gets inside sports bottle straws and the detail cleaner gets into the crevices of caps and lids. All three tools store together on a handy ring and easily snap off for use. The brushes have durable nylon bristles that won’t lose their shape and soft, comfortable, non-slip handles.
