Need an easier way to clean out your water bottle? You're so not alone. That's why we love these new cleaning pods from Grove Co.—just pop one in, let it fizz and do it's thing for ten to 15 minutes, rinse it out, and voila! All clean. You can also use these for to-go coffee mugs, small blenders, and more. Just make sure you don't replace the lid or cap while the pod is in action, since it will pressurize and lead to a bigger mess to clean.
