The Square Water Bottle Review

It's All in a Name: The Square by Clean Bottle

If you love to stay hydrated but hate trying to clean the bottom of your water bottle, the man behind The Square ($40) feels your pain and came up with a simple solution.

While out on a bike ride, founder Dave Mayer went to fill up his water bottle but found what he describes as "what looked like a science experiment gone wrong" at the bottom. Mayer decided to design a bottle of his own that unscrews at both the top and bottom.

I've become accustomed to chasing my water bottle around the gym or a yoga studio as it rolls away when accidentally knocked over, but because of The Square's design, this problem is taken out of the equation. And the days of spilling over a bottle with a slightly open lid are over; both of the BPA-free plastic caps make an audible lock so you know they're secure. The sleek shape also makes it simple to tuck into a bag securely. The only gripe is that it costs a whopping $40, a significant increase from the other bottles I've purchased in the past, and it also only holds 20 ounces, a little less water than I'm accustomed to having on hand. But if you're really concerned about your water bottle getting squeaky clean — or you hate the sound of a bottle being hit over in Savasana — I'd definitely give The Square a try. Since I've tested it out, it's had a permanent home on my desk at work.
