Why Does The Swig Lid Smell So Bad?
The Swig Lids do in fact collect and concentrate the oils from any foods that go into the swig lid. The oils stick to the lid and can be difficult to remove. One way to remove oil stains is by microwaving the lid for a short time and then try soaking it in a baking soda solution of water and lemon juice.
The lid can hold the smell in because of how tight it is. Plastic bottles and even some metal ones may also cause a strong smell if they’re really old and worn out.
There Was A Black Mold On My Swig Lid. What Should I Do?
To remove black mold, you should use a dry towel to rub the lid and then add dish soap, baking soda and water before continuously turning the cap on and off for a few seconds. Rinse with clean water and then let air dry for at least 24 hours after using.
First, try soaking the lid in a mixture of 1/4 cup bleach and 1/4 cup water for 45 minutes. If that doesn’t work, you can use hydrogen peroxide. Let the hydrogen peroxide get all over the lid’s surface before washing with soap and water and drying completely.
