How to Care For Those Double-Walled Reusable Cups

Ever since Starbucks came out with its highly coveted to-go cold cup tumbler, I've been spotting similar versions everywhere: at drugstores, on the bus, and all over Sugar HQ!

Double-walled acrylic cups are an eco-friendly, sturdy vehicle for not only iced beverages like coffee, but also the smoothies I've been whipping up every morning as a fresh start.

Want to know how to ensure your reusable drink ware lasts as long as possible? Then follow these tips, when you keep reading.

  • Don't throw them in the dishwasher, freezer, or microwave. This could potentially cause them to break down over time.
  • Instead, hand wash your cups with warm, soapy water (don't soak them!), then air-dry them with the top and straw off.
  • Ideally, your cup should be free from bisphenol A (BPA), an industrial chemical that's been known to seep into food and beverages over time.
  • While these cups do tolerate hot beverages, you don't want to melt that plastic, so don't pour in extremely hot liquids. Instead, wait for them to come to a drinkable temp.

Are you a fan of reusable cups, too?
