How A Dented Insulated Tumbler Can Ruin Your Cold Drinks

0 5

The good news? Your insulated water bottle won’t be ruined forever by any old dent. If you drop it onto something soft, like a couch or carpet, any resulting bump will likely be small enough that it won’t bend the tumbler’s double walls toward each other. In the same vein, scratches probably won’t have an impact on the temperature of your beverage. But if you see larger craters that look like the shape of the metal has changed, you may want to test out your bottle’s ability to keep your liquid cold.

You can prevent these larger bumps by treating your tumbler with care — meaning cushion it with softer items when in a backpack or tote bag, don’t swing it around, and avoid dropping it if possible. If you want to go the extra mile, you can buy silicone boots that partially cover your tumbler, or sleeves that add protection and make it easier to grip. It’s worth looking into these options if denting is a concern, because once your bottle is damaged, it’s difficult to fix. There are methods you can try, including a few rounds of freezing water in your tumbler to pop out the dent through pressure, but they may not help if the dents are on the bottom. In that case, you’re typically better off buying a new tumbler.
