We all know the pain of trying to clean out the kids drink bottles. This TikTok mum has come up with a brilliant hack to make the process much easier.

Instead of bothering with a scrubber or a bottle brush Melbourne mum-of-two Chantel Mila recommends popping a bit of uncooked rice into your drink bottle.

She recommends you add hot water and a touch of dishwashing liquid, and then shake until clean, saying, “the rice will help scrub the inside of the bottle and leave it perfectly clean”.

Sounds like it might be worth a try. I usually just pop all ours in the dishwasher.

These awesome drink bottles are great if you need to replace any before next term.
