Asda Smartprice Plastic Sports Bottle
Advantages: easy to use, doesn't spill, good price
Disadvantages: none, does all I want a sports bottle to do! (considering I am not using it for sports lol)
At the moment I am still on a quest for saving money on the little things, so I have more to spend on the big things. For example, just yesterday I took my daughter and niece to go see Dora the Explorer at the theatre (a really vibrant show I'd definitely recommend anyone with kids under 10 to take them!) and I just knew buying drinks and snacks there etc was going to cost me an arm and a leg. So recently when I was in Asda I bought this sports bottle as I figured I could bring drink from home (seeing as I usually have diluted which makes far more drinks in the long run!) and I could carry this to work and on days out such as yesterday.
The Asda smart price sports bottle is made from quite strong and durable blue plastic and has a removable lid that has a clip which still stays attached to the bottle so never gets lost. This is ideal for me as the amount of bottles I have purchased in the past and somehow I can either find the top and not the bottle or vice versa! So with this, there is little chance of it happening! It has a great capacity at 750ml which holds enough juice (I really wish I could drink more water!) which doesn't quite last me all day but holds me until I am back home as I drink like a fish!
The bottle is rigid to a degree in that it doesn't get squished easily as I had loads in my bag like crisps and sweets and also cartons of ribena for the little ones and this bottle held its own! However it is flexible enough that when I am drinking it can be gently squeezed and does slightly change shape to extract the juice when drinking.
Fortunately, this has a secure screw top lid which is removed to pour the drink/water in as long as its on properly (which I constantly made sure of by tipping the bottle upside down to check for any drops leaking!) there are absolutely no spillages and my bag and its contents stayed nice and dry! Hoorah! To drink from it is easy and simple like many other sports bottles it has a type of spout on top, similar to the one on a Robinson's fruit shoot bottle as the best way I can describe it lol. Pull upwards with your teeth to open it and tilt head back and sip, and then use your mouth to push it back down and close it again. The additional cap is for security and I like the added protection to get in and out of the bottle.
It is easy to clean, and whilst I do not have a dishwasher to say whether it is suitable I have had no problems in cleaning it with some hot water and fairy washing up liquid!
Overall, I think I grabbed the bottle for about £1.30 as it was the last I saw on the shelf and I thought it was pretty good for the price. I would definitely recommend it as it is easy to use, secure and I know it will save me lots of money in the long run on buying drinks when I am out and about or even at work when I am thirsty!
Summary: sports bottle from asda - definitely recommend
