Hello there! I would just like to give a little suggestion that would have helped me a lot. I am lazy and I’m not a big cleaner so I never really used a reuseable water bottle quite as often as I use the Soylent pitcher. I had read the instructions but I had never really looked at the forums. I used to only remove the screw top when cleaning the pitcher. I had read that you didn’t want to overtighten the top otherwise you might run into leaking issues. So when I had tried to remove the handle part and it wouldn’t come off easily, I thought that maybe this wasn’t supposed to come off. I didn’t want to force it because I didn’t want to ruin the seal and ruin the pitcher I had just got. Jump ahead a little bit and I had cleaned it a couple times with soap. All of a sudden every batch I made tasted terrible. Very soapy and just bad. Apparently this was because the soap and particles of Soylent were stuck up under the screw off handle piece. Once I figured this out and removed that part and cleaned it separately, everything was completely fine. I really enjoy Soylent, not just the product but the idea of it. That is why I didn’t throw it in the trash and never buy it again. But I’m sure someone out there had a similar issue and maybe didn’t stick it through. So my suggestion is to include some cleaning instructions with either the release notes or any of the documentation that comes with Soylent. Maybe I missed it, but then that means there could be an exposure problem. Keep up the good work!
TL;DR: Post pitcher cleaning instructions clearly so idiots like me wont try to contaminate their Soylent with soap and spoiled product.
