Product related questions


Our bottles are created with ThermaS’well technology. Our vacuum seal keeps any liquid you place inside hot for 24 hours and cold for 12, so there’s no need to place in a freezer or refrigerator. Doing so can actually damage the bottle & it’s vacuum seal.


Regarding the soy-based paints we use on our bottles — S’well bottles are subject to normal wear and tear. In some instances pieces of the paint may chip from a fall or two. When we decided on the paint, we looked for a solution that was safe & eco-friendly first and foremost. True durability had to be sacrificed in this case.

**We have subsequently perfected a safe and more durable finish that is chip-resistant featured in our Stone Collection.


S’well bottles are simply cleaned with a mixture of hot water and soap.

For optimal cleansing, we recommend a mixture of hot water, soap, and vinegar. S’well bottles are NOT dishwasher safe so please be careful when cleaning your bottle.


In 2010, S’well launched with a mission to rid the world of plastic bottles. With your continued support, we are doing just that! In the US alone, an estimated 50 billion plastic bottles are dumped in landfill sites each year, and over 200 billion globally.

When developing and designing the S’well bottle, we aimed to create a beautifully crafted bottle that keeps drinks cold for 24 hours and hot for 12, while also giving back to those in need. At S’well, we understand it’s important to be part of the solution, which is why we’re proud to partner with our many charity partners: working towards bettering our environment and communities around the world, one S’well bottle at a time.


S’well bottles are made high-quality, 18/8 food-grade stainless steel. They are BPA & toxin-free, providing a healthier and safer option to single-use plastic water bottles. Our variety of paints are soy-based and also toxin/lead free.

**Our bottle caps do contain a singular silicon O-ring.


S’well has always shared the same concerns as our customers regarding the manufacturing of our bottles in China. We have set in place a set of manufacturing guidelines by which all our partners of overseas must abide to ensure that our product is produced safely and sustainably. More importantly, these guidelines ensure the well being of the people who create our bottles, guaranteeing fair treatment and compensation. By manufacturing in China, S’well is able to create an item of exceptional quality at a reasonable price.


S’well bottles are airport security friendly, as long as you remember to empty out what’s inside first!


No — all S’well bottles are made from high quality 18/8 grade stainless steel, completely free of BPA and harmful toxins. Stainless steel is inherently safe, and the insides of our bottles don’t need a liner.


Our Chalk Ink pens are safe and toxin free. They are easily removed using a damp cloth, or Windex.


We recommend drying your S’well with the lid off.

**Please note that submerging your cap for long periods of time can also interfere with the vacuum seal.
