Step 1: Cleaning the Tumbler

You have to separate the tumbler and the lid before cleaning the tumbler. The advised order is to wash the tumbler first and the lid second. Add a few spoons of vinegar/dish soap and baking soda into the Yeti tumbler and mix them with a stirrer. Then, you can pour hot water into the tumbler and continue to mix the magic solution. When the water temperature drops to a tolerable degree, you can grab a sponge and wipe the tumbler with the home-made solution/paste carefully. This step enables you to remove both the annoying stains and unpleasant odors. You can wipe the tumbler for a longer time for better cleaning effect.

Step 2: Removing the Mold (Alternative)

This step aims to help you get rid of the mold. If your tumbler does not have mold, you can skip to Step 3 straightly.

So when it comes to mold growing in your tumbler, KingStar suggests you to perform a process of sterilization for easier cleaning. You should prepare a wash basin or any kind of basin that can submerge your Yeti tumbler. Fill the tumbler with a mixture of vinegar and water and place your Yeti tumbler in the basin. Pour water and add several drops of disinfectant into the basin and let the tumbler lie still under the water in the basin for 2 hours. White distilled vinegar and disinfectant will effectively kill off mold and bacteria inside and outside of your Yeti tumbler, and after 2 hours of submerging, you can take out the tumbler. Then, discard vinegar water in your tumbler and wash the inner part with a soft sponge. It should also be mentioned that you must clean the residual disinfectant on the outer shell of your tumbler as this solution is not edible.

Step 3: Cleaning the Lid

The lid of a Yeti tumbler consists of two part, the lid and a rubber ring. If it is difficult for you to separate them directly, use a spoon to pull the ring off.

The lid is easy to clean as it is made by plastics. You can simply rinse it with warm water or add 1 to 2 spoons of vinegar for better cleaning. However, the rubber ring should be handled with really meticulously. This part easily traps vapour and liquids in it, offering a perfect environment for mold and mildew to grow. Again, you can use vinegar and baking soda to remove them.

Take a bowl and pour into the bowl water, white distilled vinegar and baking soda in sequence. Mix them into a paste and use it to clean the rubber ring. If the ring is too gross, you should let it sit in the bowl full of water mixed in vinegar for half an hour before rinsing it. However, if the rubber ring dries out or is almost broken, then it is advised to get a new one on shopping websites such as Amazon and eBay.

Step 4: Dry Everything Completely

Now you have finished cleaning your favorite Yeti tumbler. Remember to wash your cleaning tools such as the sponge and the spoon, because you may use them later for cleaning. After you have finished washing, it’s time to dry them. You can put them upside down for draining. But this method can not dry them completely as the part contacting the ground inevitably touches the dripping water. So you have to find some tools that can avoid the above said issue.

Here KingStar suggests you to put them in your vegetable washing basket, which manages to separate water and your tumbler as well as your cleaning tools. In this way, they can be thoroughly drained and easily recollected.

Three Detailed Methods

Apart from the succinct method, KingStar also shares with you another three detailed methods to better facilitate your understanding and handling.

Method 1: Adopting Vinegar and Salt

Things you need to prepare for this method:

  • Water
  • White distilled vinegar
  • Salt
  • Cloth
  • Spoon
  • Stirrer

This method is pretty practical and easy to adopt, and the materials we choose are quite normal. You can find them in your kitchen or just get them in your local shops. Salt boasts its incredibly excellent cleaning properties and is thus perfect for removing disgusting stains. So here we go!

First, you should fetch several spoons of white distilled vinegar and pour it into the Yeti tumbler, which is conducive to eliminating germs. Then, you should take one spoon of salt and put it into the tumbler for mixing. Keep stirring the salt and the vinegar while pouring a little amount of water into the tumbler, and you will get a cleaning solution. Actually, when you are mixing them, some stains would be wiped off. Now, it’s time for the towel to play its role. KingStar suggests you to pick up a microfiber cloth of premium quality to scrub those tough stains out of your Yeti tumbler. A microfiber cloth is easy to use and can save your effort! And if the cleaning effect is not so good, you can simply repeat this process until all the stains are wiped off. After you have removed stains, you are supposed to rinse the tumbler comprehensively.

Method 2: Using Baking Soda

Things you need to prepare for this method:

  • Water
  • Baking soda
  • Towel
  • Spoon
  • Stirrer

The second method is a little bit complicated than the first one, but it has a better cleaning performance. Baking soda, as a natural cleaning material, has been widely adopted in cleaning products and will not generate any side effects. It also has a whitening capability that can help you to remove the coffee stains.

First of all, take several spoons of pure baking soda and put it at the bottom of your Yeti tumbler before adding water into it. It should be noted that you cannot add too much water into the tumbler, which may dilute the mixture and can not produce a qualified paste. But if you have poured that amount of water into your Yeti, then you must have to put into the tumbler extra baking soda to thicken the mixture. After that, you have to use the stirrer to mix them until they become a paste. Spread the paste inside of your Yeti tumbler comprehensively and then use a towel to wipe off the paste. In an ideal situation, most of the stains would be removed together with the paste and the only thing you are going to do is wash the tumbler and its lid completely. But if some coffee stains continue to stick to the inner wall, you can repeat the above process for another time to get rid of the residues.

Method 3: Applying Yeti Cleaning Tablets

Things you need to prepare for this method:

  • Water
  • Yeti Cleaning Tablets
  • Bowl
  • Towel

Actually, this method is the easiest way to clean your Yeti tumbler, but it is also the most expensive approach. A single Yeti tablet costs you $1.87! Although the tablet can remove some stains effectively, it still requires you to wipe out the stubborn ones with a towel for better cleaning. So how to apply Yeti cleaning tablets?

First, you must have Yeti tablets, which can be bought online. The tablet contains many ingredients including sodium carbonate, sodium percarbonate, citric acid and so on, producing a fizzing sound when reacts with water. You are supposed to fill your tumbler with water first before adding the tablet. If your Yeti tumbler is over 30 oz, you need to put 2 tablets into it. Let the tablet sit in the water for 5 minutes and you can pour a small amount of tablet solution into another bowl to clean its lid. Next, you can use a towel to clean the tumbler with the tablet solution. By applying Yeti cleaning tablets, coffee stains can be eliminated without too much effort. KingStar suggests you to clean the tumbler with the tablets once a week.

Verdict of the Three Cleaning Methods:

The first method that adopts white distilled vinegar with salt is the best approach to remove coffee stains. Actually, this method is also the simplest one as you can get all the materials from your kitchen or a local shop. Compared to the first one, the second method is a little bit complicated, but it boasts the best cleaning effect. The third method that uses the Yeti tablet is definitely the most expensive way. And this method is in fact not so smart or full-automatic as the tablet only dissolves the coffee stains and you still have to clean the tumbler with a towel.

III. How to Clean Yeti MagSlider Tumbler Lid

The MagSlider lid of the Rambler, different from other Yeti tumblers’ lids, needs to be washed in a unique way. This lid is splash-resistant and leak-proof, which means the consisting parts of the lid are perfectly installed and matched. Therefore, you should follow a fixed order to take them down and wash them.

First, pop the MagSlider off the Yeti lid and put it aside. Then you should carefully remove the rubber gasket from the tumbler. It is closely installed so you may need some tools to take down the gasket. Since you have finished the disassembling, you stand ready to clean them.

Similarly, you can just clean the lid in the same way as you wash the tumbler. The above elaborated three methods of removing stains plus the succinct approach are also applicable for cleaning lids.
