Q4. What if my vacuum bottle leaks from the stopper?
A4. The leaking may be caused by liquid that is trapped inside the spout, or moisture remaining in the cup or cup/cap. To alleviate this, allow liquid to completely drain back into the bottle after pouring and before closing the spout. Close the spout and shake the bottle to expel any excess liquid that may still be in the spout. Wipe away moisture from the cup or cup/cap before closing. Be sure to unscrew the stopper and rinse under running water after each use.

They are non-coated on the inside and instead use an electrically charged polishing process to treat and finish the interior.
