Flush it with water, more water, more water and then after that.........flush it with water. Some
people fill it with water and leave it for a day or two then flush some more.

Also I personbally use "Milton Baby Fluid" to clean my camleback once a month or so. Bottle brushes
come in handy too.

Simon.........Feeling a little flushed!

Well, I much prefer the anise flavor of Ouzo, but that's purely personal taste.

Seriously: Usually a solution of baking soda will improve stuff like that. I used about a teaspoon
in my 72 oz-er. Fill it the rest of the way with hot water, let it sit there for a couple of
hours, rinse.

Note: Some people seem to be more sensitive to the "plastic" taste than others. SO notices it much
more than I.

Dunno, the water here tastes so bad anyway, it covers up the plastic taste completely! I don't need
to ever clean my camelbak because the chlorine content is so high it immediately destroys any
bacteria that might grow in the bladder.

Bacteria? I think that I got a whole new form of life goin' on in mine. Gonna poke 'em with a bottle
brush one day and evict 'em from that tube.... Until then it's fascinating watching them live their
lives.... Westie
