Are Tumblers Dishwasher Safe?

Not all insulated tumblers are dishwasher safe. The simplest way to determine if your tumbler is dishwasher safe is to check for a “dishwasher safe” symbol on the bottom of it.

If nothing is printed on the bottom of the tumbler, be sure to check the side, the handle, and the inside of it. Keep in mind that every tumbler can be labeled differently. The most common symbol to look out for is the imagery of plates being washed or “rained” on.

If you still can’t tell, visit the manufacturer’s website for more information, or err on the side of caution and hand wash your tumbler.

Which BrüMate Products Are Dishwasher Safe?

How to Tell If Your BrüMate Tumbler Is Dishwasher Safe

You can tell if your BrüMate is dishwasher safe by looking for the “dishwasher safe” icon on the tumbler. It should look something like this:

You can also tell if your BrüMate is dishwasher safe by looking at the box it was shipped in. Dishwasher-safe items will have a reflective sticker under the cleaning section that says “dishwasher safe.”

How to Safely Clean Your BrüMate Tumbler

If you have a BrüMate product or another tumbler that isn’t dishwasher safe, have no fear! There are still simple solutions for keeping your tumbler sparkling clean.

Below are our top three takeaways for how to safely clean your BrüMate tumblers.

1. Remove All Pieces & Wash Individually

Remember to take your tumblers apart before washing them (whether you’re washing them by hand or using the dishwasher). Every nook and cranny of your tumbler should be exposed to ensure the entire cup gets cleaned.

This includes taking off and opening the lid and removing the straw (if your tumbler is equipped with one).

2. Use the BrüMate Cleaning Bundle & Tablets

When it comes to handwashing tumblers and bottles, it can be difficult to truly deep clean them properly.

To make cleaning your tumblers easy, buy the BrüMate Bottle & Tumbler Cleaning Essentials Bundle. The Bottle & Tumbler Cleaning Essentials Bundle comes with a BrüBrush, two cleaning heads, and 20 all-natural VooBrü cleaning tablets. Plus, it’s compatible with all BrüMate tumblers!

3. Use Antibacterial Soap

As noted above, tumblers differ from other drinkware because of their hard-to-reach crevices. Whether washing your tumblers in the dishwasher or by hand, it’s important to use antibacterial soap to kill the bacteria that builds up in those small spaces over time.

How Often Should Tumblers & Water Bottles Be Washed?

Typically, people do not clean their tumblers or water bottles as often as they should. The general rule of thumb is to clean them at least once a week. Of course, the more you use your tumbler, the more often you should wash it.

Hopefully, you now have a better gauge of how to clean your tumbler or BrüMate drinkware. But if you’re looking for a more in-depth guide for hand washing your tumbler, including step-by-step instructions for cleaning your bottles, lids, and straws, check out this guide.
