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


S’well bottles are subject to normal wear and tear if not treated with care. All of our bottles are coated with soy-based paints, which give up some durability to ensure maximum safety and  eco-friendliness.  Because of this, there are some instances where pieces of the paint may chip after a fall or two.

S’well bottles can dent when subject to a large enough impact, so be careful when using and transporting the bottle. This means no playing frisbee with it!

If for some reason, you receive a brand new S’well bottle with a dent or paint chip, that’s a different story. In that case, please contact customer service via the form below, and we will help you as soon as possible.


First, let’s answer how NOT to clean a S’well bottle. S’well bottles are NOT dishwasher safe. Running a S’well through the dishwasher can cause paint to chip and the vacuum seal to become ineffective. You should also make sure that you do NOT submerge your cap for long periods of time, since that will interfere with the vacuum seal.

S’well bottles are simply cleaned with a mixture of hot water and soap. Yes, it’s that easy!

If you’re looking for a really deep clean, we recommend a mixture of hot water, soap, and vinegar. Leaving this solution in your S’well to soak overnight tends to get rid of the smell of the coffee you left in your S’well for a week…

S’well bottles are made of high-quality, 18/8 food-grade stainless steel. They are BPA, BPS and toxin-free, providing a healthier and safer option to single-use plastic water bottles. We don’t just stop there – our variety of paints are soy-based and also toxin/lead free.


S’well has always shared the same concerns as our customers over the manufacturing of our bottles in China. We have set in place a set of manufacturing guidelines by which all of our overseas partners must adhere to, ensuring 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 highly resistant to rust, meaning the insides of our bottles don’t need a liner.


We love the chalk pens because we can label our bottles, and the ink won’t wipe off when you go to take a sip. But what happens when you do want to wipe off that chalk art? The chalk ink can be easily removed with a damp cloth or Windex.

Also, if you’re curious, our Chalk Ink pens are safe and toxin free, just like the rest of our products.


After you wash your S’well bottle (see How do I clean my S’well Bottle?), we recommend that you dry your S’well by airing it out upside down and store your S’well with the lid off. This allows your bottle to air out and dry properly, keeping your S’well as fresh as the day you got it!


S’well bottles can maintain the temperature of any liquid, hot or cold. This means you can pack your water, juice, smoothie or any other cold beverage in your S’well, and it will stay cold for 24 hours.

Tea, coffee, hot chocolate or any other hot beverage will keep its heat for 12 hours.

Carbonated beverages stay fresh with our vacuum seal, so feel free to fill your S’well with soda, beer, champagne or any other bubbly drinks. On that note, our 25oz S’wells fit an entire bottle of wine, so it’s perfect for wine on the go to a dinner party, picnic or any other occasion that calls for a celebration.

The options are endless!
