I used a throw away a plastic baggie every day for my sandwiches, but now that I have this, I just wash by hand it with my dishes at night.

    10. A water bottle you'll use all the time – that's just a ~plane~ and simple fact.


    Promising review: "We love this water bottles! Our kids are all in school now, so I needed two new ones for our twins who just entered pre-k. My oldest has one, has used and abused it for 4 years now, and it's still in great shape! In school, the kids are allowed to carry a water bottle around with them wherever they go, but it needs to be spill proof and/or have a lid/cap. These serve the purpose very well. The lid is easy enough to remove and the bottle has a wide enough opening that kids can easily refill at the water fountain, and drinking from the bottle is easy while also being clean. The handle on the lid also allows for the kids to attach the bottle to their person or backpack for easy carrying. Also, a huge plus is that replacement parts are easy to come by, though our oldest of these bottles is still thriving on its original parts!" —Christi
