How long will these keep a refrigerated beverage cold for, and is it compatible with a swirly straw?

I have one of these I use for smoothies, and I wanted to pick up additional ones, but I can’t figure out how to clean the straw? My solution has been to buy my own throw away straws, but I’d like to use the one that comes with the cup.

They make brushes that can be used to clean the straws. They’re often in the baby section with the bottle brushes.

I use the large-bore chenille craft sticks (aka pipe cleaners) to clean out wide straws. I just use regular width long pipe cleaners for cleaning out the standard skinny straws.

Yup. I use the same thing. I actually prefer the smaller pipe cleaners and twist two of them together. It makes for a stronger pipe and the bristles push harder on the sides of the straws.

Do the lids press on or screw on? Would even want to drink out of the cup without the lid on (ie. sharp or uncomfortable to the mouth)?

A picture without the lid on would do wonders.

This price makes no sense, it certainly isn’t much of a deal as you can find these marked down at Walmart and even full price they are only $4.99 plus tax. So, $5.35 or so per cup saves you a couple of bucks over ordering them here.

As to cleaning the straws, I use this. But, these straws with the bump out in the straw to keep it in the lid frequently have problems with the bump, which is hollow, collecting debris and not coming clean. Replacement straws without the bump don’t cost much. They have a small silicone ring, instead.

I bought some of the 16 oz ones of these on woot a while back. 2 arived with the gel leaking out of them. The other 4 were only 1/3 to 1/2 filled with the gel. They were absolute junk. DO NOT BUY THEM!!

I think you might have mis-read. For a bundle of 6 it is either $19.99 or $22.99, depending on which style you prefer. Either way it is a much better deal, as long as they are in good condition.

The straw brushes they sell work great.

They are screw-on lids. As far as sharpness, it depends on how well the cup was made; the double wall seal is at the lid.

the gel-filled ones are supposed to only be filled 1/3 to 1/2 full- you stick them in the freezer, the gel freezes (and expands to fill the space) and that is what keeps your beverage cold.

I’ve bought (and junked) a fair number of these; they are absolutely NOT dishwasher-safe, and they tend to break when dropped, regardless of if they are full of liquid or not. I’ve since gone all retro and hipster-esque and started using mason jars with a cuppow lid for my beverage needs- dishwasher safe, (including the lid) reasonably inexpensive (the lid was ~$8, I have mason jars to spare as I can at home), and cool looking to boot.

I bought these a while back on Woot. One arrived cracked, the rest cracked while freezing. I have 2 left that I did not freeze and they aren’t cracked. But then again, I hardly use them because the whole reason I bought them was to freeze, and if I can’t freeze them I’d rather use my other cup.

The gel stuff seems to do just about no good as far as keeping drinks cool, but it makes the cup sweat like crazy.

I’m sorry they arrived that way for you, please make sure to email support@woot.com if you haven’t already!

I picked up a couple of these at Walmart the end of last summer. A brush to clean the straws would be cool but I just use happy fuzzy pipe cleaner. 23 + 5 = 28 / 6 = $4.66. Not a steal per say but still less than the 5.99 discounted price I paid. We use them as adult sippy cups for adult beverages and they work great! No Party fouls for me! They also work well for hot coffee in the morning. I figured the gel was more for looks as it didn’t really move much and as such I never thought to freeze them. I use them almost daily; no cracks, leaks or breaks and I love them!

For years I have tried to find some kind of cup that will keep liquid cold for more than an hour or so and have never found anything that works well. So, what I use is a regular plastic water bottle–the kind that the water comes in when you buy it–fill it about 1/3 to 1/2 way with water, iced tea, or whatever it is I want to take with me, freeze it overnight, then before I leave, fill it up with fresh water or tea or whatever. Not only does the frozen half keep the fresh half cold for a long time, as it melts you are getting a long supply of cold water and if you have tea or whatever, as the frozen half melts it does not dilute like ice does. I usually just take water with me, so I keep 3 or 4 1/2 filled bottles in the freezer all the time–pull one out, fill it with fresh water, ready to go and have cold water all morning or afternoon long. Total cost—a 6 pack of bottled water, reuse for literally years and easy to clean. And they seldom break if dropped.

Don’t freeze with the tops screwed on, the two pieces of the container will separate when you try to remove the top.

I use the Dr. Brown cleaning brush and it works like a charm:
