How do I clean my Healthy Human Stein or Cruiser?
Easy! We recommend you clean your Healthy Human with hot, soapy water and a soft bottle brush. Then let it air dry. If you feel that your bottle needs a more thorough cleaning, wash it with 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 3-4 tablespoons of baking soda and hot water. You can even let it soak overnight if you find you’re fighting some stubborn stains or odors.
Please do not use bleach or chlorine cleansers, since the naturally protective finish of stainless steel – while very durable – can be damaged by these ingredients.
We DO NOT recommend you clean your Healthy Human in the dishwasher, as it will compromise the vacuum seal insulation and void your warranty.

How much does a Stein weigh?
Well it all depends on which product you’ve got, as they’re all different. But we’ve tested the wall thicknesses and made sure that there is a good balance between durability and weight. As we’re committed to bringing you only the best products on the market, the walls of our Steins are thicker than others out there. Also, we’ve made sure that they don’t dent easily, yet they’re still not going to weigh you down, as they’re lightweight and easy to carry. Take a look at our product pages to get the exact specs for each of our products. Trust us, you won’t be disappointed!
Can I fill my Stein/Cruiser with acidic beverages, such as juice?
Yes! Acidic beverages will not damage this high-quality stainless steel.
Can I Put my Healthy Human on the Stove
No! Please don’t do that…this will damage the bottle and will unfortunately make your warranty null and void!
Why can’t I get the smell/taste of coffee (or something else) out of my Stein/Cruiser?
Your Stein/Cruiser is made from pure 18/8 stainless steel that will not retain flavors or smells after you’ve thoroughly cleaned it. Usually giving it a good scrub with a bottle brush and warm, soapy water will do the trick. If it needs a bit more attention, try mixing 1/4 cup of white distilled vinegar and 3-4 tablespoons of baking soda in warm water and let it soak in your Stein overnight.
Sometimes the problem is in the cap, especially if it has a silicone ring. Make sure you pop the ring out once in awhile and scrub it well with soap and hot water. You can also soak the cap overnight in the same mixture of white distilled vinegar and baking soda.
How do I get tea stains out of my Stein/Cruiser?
Vinegar and baking soda are your Stein/Cruiser’s best friend when it comes to stains. You can make a paste using a little bit of white distilled vinegar and a little bit of baking soda and give it a good ole’ scrub. The baking soda is an all-natural abrasive that will help get the stains out. You can also soak it overnight in a mixture of 1/4 cup of white distilled vinegar and 3-4 tablespoons of baking soda. Note that soaking your entire Stein/Cruiser in hot water can discolor the powder coat.
Should I wash my Stein / Cruiser before its first use?
Yes! Hand wash your Healthy Human and Healthy Human cap with hot, soapy water. Rinse them both well, and it will be ready for its first adventure.

How do I clean my Healthy Human Stein Classic Lid?
Now that you own a Healthy Human Stein, you will quickly come to realize that it really outshines other waters bottles. Like any other prized possession, you may want to give it a little extra love and care. An important aspect of maintaining your Healthy Human Stein and lid is to perform periodic cleaning and consider replacing the gasket every so often. Doing so will ensure your Stein does not leak or retain any lingering smells from past beverages.
- First, soak your lid in distilled vinegar and baking soda overnight. If you still smell something, chances are you need to remove the lid gasket and do a more thorough cleaning. This can be done with a pair of tweezers very easily.
- Then, soak the lid and the gasket separately. We have discovered a common cotton swab is the best cleaning tool for inside the lid. Be sure to rinse well and perform the smell test again. If you still smell yesterday’s coffee, your gasket needs to be replaced. No problem! Simply contact Healthy Human directly and we will send you a new one right away! No questions asked.
How do I clean my Healthy Human Cruiser Lid?
Cleaning your Healthy Human Cruiser Lid and gasket is very easy.
- Simply remove the gasket/ring from your lid, being careful not to stretch it too much.This will ensure that it will remain as tight as possible and continue to be a good seal when on your cup.
- For daily cleaning, either use a soft cloth to wash the lid and gasket, or pop them in the dishwasher. If you would like to do a deeper cleaning, soak them in a mixture of distilled vinegar and baking soda overnight. Rinse well. This should remove any lingering smell and help keep them clean.
If your gasket becomes too loose after awhile, do not worry! We are happy to send you a replacement. Simply contact Healthy Human and we will mail you one right away.
What types of beverages can I put in my insulated Healthy Human Stein & Cruiser?
Just about anything you can think of, hot or cold! Some ideas for cold beverages to carry with you in your Healthy Human include: water, juice, kombucha, wine, chocolate milk, gin or beer. With our double wall insulated design, you can fill it with any hot beverage, too, such as coffee, tea, hot chocolate, soup, chili, etc. Be careful with carbonated drinks as they will build pressure when shaken, just like in any other bottle.
My Stein or Cruiser seems to be Rusting, why is this?
All of our Healthy Human products are made from 18/8 food-grade stainless steel which is safe, durable and BPA-free. It is a highly rust resistant food-grade stainless steel. If it does look like it’s rusting, then there’s no need to worry as it’s more than likely just a mark that’s been left behind by the electropolishing process. This process smooths the surface of the metal and that’s what gives it its super cool shine. Occasionally there are some electrolytes that are left behind on the surface which turn into a rust type color. We promise it’s harmless so no need to stress.
It’s also easy to get rid of. To remove the rust color just soak your Healthy Human overnight with hot water, 1.4 cup apple cider vinegar and 3 to 4 tablespoons of baking soda. Give it a good ole scrub in the morning with a soft brush and it will be good to go.

I Dropped My Healthy Human and have Dented it. What can I do to get the Dents Out?
Oh no, we’re sorry to hear that! Unfortunately our Healthy Human products can dent when dropped, even though they’re made out of super strong stainless steel. You might be able to put a wooden spoon or a dowel inside the bottle and tap on the other end with a hammer to get out the dent, but just to prepare you it might not work. Please DON’T use a metal object to try and bang the dent out as you will probably do more harm than good.
Unfortunately if you dent it, this isn’t covered by our warranty as this only covers manufacturer’s defects, sorry! But the good news is that you can still use it like normal and it won’t affect your Healthy Human in any way.
Can I put hot liquids in my insulated Healthy Human Stein & Cruiser?
Yes! You can pour hot liquids directly into our insulated Steins & Cruisers. Always take care when pouring hot liquids into the bottle and do not overfill.
Do Steins & Cruisers sweat?
Zero Sweat! All of our Healthy Human products are made using double-walled construction with vacuum insulation, which gives them amazing insulating properties. So no matter what you place inside them or what the temperature is outside, your hands stay dry!
Can I use my Healthy Human for carrying alcohol?
Yes! In fact, our 32 oz/946 ml Stein holds an entire bottle of wine. Many people use the 16 oz Stein to carry liquor and the big 64 oz Stein/Growler to transport a half gallon of beer. All of our products are made of pure 18/8 stainless steel, which is often used in the beer and wine industry.
Can I Put My Healthy Human In The Freezer?
No. We do not recommend placing our Steins and Cruisers in the freezer as the pressure of the expanding liquids as they freeze can compromise the vacuum seal. Placing your Healthy Human products in the freezer will void the warranty on the product.
Can I use my Stein for milk, breast milk or formula?
Yes! Your Stein is made of 18/8 high food-grade stainless steel, the same stuff they use in the dairy and food industry.
