Metal Taste in Stainless Steel Bottles
[Misc] Flowers
I was discussing water bottles with hemisphere and the subject of stainless steel came up, specifically that metallic taste some people notice. I haven't had a problem with it myself, so I'm inclined to think it's some sort of genetic trait or something.

That said, I found a tip for getting rid of the taste at eHow. In case the page goes missing later, here are the steps.

How to Get Rid of a Metallic Taste From Stainless Steel Water Bottles by Karren Doll Tolliver

1. Wash the stainless steel water bottle in hot soapy water and rinse well.

2. Mix enough of the distilled or filtered water in equal proportion with the vinegar to fill the water bottle. For example, if your water bottle is 16 ounces, mix eight ounces of the water with eight ounces of the vinegar.

3. Fill the bottle with the water and vinegar mixture.

4. Allow the bottle to sit undisturbed overnight with the vinegar-and-water mixture in it.

5. Pour out the water-and-vinegar mixture and rinse the water bottle well. The metallic taste should be gone. If the metallic taste comes back, simply repeat these steps to get rid of it again.
