I saw this cool little gadget, the Bobble Filtered Water Bottle a few weeks ago in the Stylist Magazine, and decided to hunt one down.
I passionately hate drinking water but I know it really helps – my skin looks much better when I make an effort to drink a litre a day.
The invention is a really cool idea. The idea is that you can fill up your bottle with normal tap water and the filter will – well, filter it, so it’s as good as (probably better!) than bottled water. It’s better for the environment, it saves money…although you do need to change the filter every 2 months or after every 140 litres of water (they cost £6.95).
Oh and it comes in different colours so you can choose a different one each time.
There’s basic care instructions…Wash the bottle frequently, clean the carbon filter in really hot eater etc. It’s all quite low maintenence!
I have to say, I haven’t used it much though – at work I have a water cooler near me so I use that instead. At home I have a big Britta jug so I don’t need the filter bottle. When DO I need a build in filter? Oh I know, if I go camping…?!
One fault I noticed – the bottle scuffs easily. I have’t used it yet and it’s got three scuff marks already, just from having it a big with a few other things.
I bought this at Scarlet & Jones for £9.95 (free shipping – Harvey Nichols also sell it but they charge for shipping.)
