Frequently Asked Questions
Are MiiR hydration products dishwasher safe?Yes. However, they recommend hand washing any of their colored products. With the exception of the natural stainless steel, their bottles, tumblers, and growlers feature either a water-based paint followed by a clear protective coating, or a powder coating, which can deteriorate when regularly exposed to high water temperatures. For best results, bathe your bottle, tumbler, or growler with a long-handled bristle brush, soap and warm water.
Can a MiiR bottle go in the freezer?No. When liquids expand into a solid, a force is created that can damage the micro-welds that keep the bottle intact.
Can a MiiR hold hot tea or coffee?MiiR insulated bottles and tumblers are perfect for your daily hot tea or coffee. The vacuum-sealed double wall design on their insulated bottle and travel tumbler lines will keep your hot beverages hot for up to 8 hours without burning your mitts, and cold beverages cold for up to 24 hours without perspiring. MiiR 12oz to-go tumblers also feature double wall insulation keeping hot beverages hot up to 4 hours, and cold beverages cold up to 8 hours. Though their classic and slate bottles are tough, they are not insulated and therefore shouldn't be treated like your typical mug. Single wall bottles can perspire with chilled beverages, and are not at all designed to hold hot beverages, so please don't try it.
What about alcohol? Can you carry that too?Are you 21? Then what's stopping you? After using, they recommend immediately scrubbing the bottle's interior with a long-handled bristle brush, a bit of liquid dish soap and warm water, rather than tossing it in the dishwasher.
What if someone wants OJ, another juice variety or a smoothie to-go?You certainly can! 18/8 means durability and dependability, and they guarantee it. Acidic drinks will not affect nor deteriorate their stainless steel. For smoothies or other iced beverages they recommend using the MiiR insulated products to make sure you don't get the condensation build-up on the outside of the bottle. Just remember, after using they recommend immediately scrubbing your bottle or tumbler's interior with a long-handled bristle brush, a bit of liquid dish soap and warm water, rather than tossing it in the dishwasher.
Do MiiR bottles have a liner like aluminum bottles?No, because liners are unsafe and retain beverage flavors. MiiR's stainless steel bottles and other products do not have any liners, allowing you to taste only your present beverage.
Do MiiR products have BPA?Not a chance. Every MiiR hydration vessel is produced with high quality stainless steel that naturally does not contain any trace of BPA.
Does the paint on colored MiiR bottles, tumblers, and growlers/howlers contain lead?No. MiiR uses water-based paints or a powder coating process, and test these regularly to ensure no toxins or lead are ever present. Although their paint is safe, they recommend the natural stainless steel bottle for children who like to munch on things. Their bottles are tested by SGS, an independent third party testing agency, to ensure they provide the highest quality and safest product for their customers.
Is stainless steel healthier and safer than aluminum?In short, yes. While aluminum is lightweight and less expensive than stainless steel, aluminum bottles must be lined (typically with plastic resin) to ensure contents are safe for drinking. Yet, when faced with hot or acidic beverages, aluminum bottles can leach toxins and chemicals. Many studies have also linked aluminum exposure to Alzheimer's disease.
They say, why mess with aluminum in the first place? Know your bottle company. If you own an aluminum bottle and the composition of the liner is not known to you or that information has not been made public, toss it. The most common materials used to line aluminum bottles include plastic or baked-on epoxy, both of which can leach BPA and other toxic chemicals or get scratched with normal wear and tear, exposing the aluminum underneath.

Bicycles On a trip to Liberia in 2011 where the MiiR team documented its first water projects, MiiR founder Bryan PapГ© noticed a severe lack of practical and affordable transportation. Out of a passion to help improve the lives of those they met there and expand the brand's impact, they set out to develop a bicycle line that would help provide a bicycle to someone in need.
Over 3,000 people have received access to bicycles around the world. MiiR is commited to providing transporation through each bicycle purchased because they believe the ability to get from point A to point B efficiently can change a life.
