How do I clean my good2grow tops and bottles?

Longevity of good2grow tops depend on its cleaning care, frequency of usage and storage conditions. Get in the habit of washing your tops thoroughly and as soon as possible after every use.

Cleaning Tops

Always look inside to inspect the spout for discoloration before giving it to your child. If your tops have been sitting around for a few days with a beverage, it’s best to throw it out.

If your tops have any slimy build-up or have been used with milk, hand wash your tops. Start by removing any residue using a cloth or sponge, warm water, and dish detergent to thoroughly clean the top and remove any visible debris. 

Do NOT use a bottle brush inside the 6oz Juice top or insert any objects into the spout, as it can disrupt your tops spill-proof function.

Do NOT clean character tops with hand sanitizer, alcohol, nail polish remover, or other chemicals as it could cause the paint on the character top to come off.
