FAQ

Q: I don't like the internet, where can I get an Addverb Bottle in person?

A: We are working hard to get into your favorite stores, and we're not there yet. But, check out our blog/facebook pages for events at which you will find us. 

Q: How do I use the Addverb Areas?

A: Take your marker that came with your Addverb Bottle or a recommended marker - Sharpie brand markers work great - and write your workout on the Addverb Area. After the marker dries, you can touch and handle the bottle like normal. The more you touch the writing and the harder you rub it, the more smudged the writing may become, but it should still be legible.  After you're done working out, wipe off your writing with the included wipes.  Wash your bottle, and it's ready to go!

WARNING: Please be sure to clean the marker off of the Addverb Areas before washing the the Addverb Bottle in the dishwasher - the heat cycle in the dishwasher may bake the marker onto the Addverb Areas making the marker difficult or impossible to remove.  

Q: Can I use any marker to write on the Addverb Areas?

A: We recommend and include in our full packages Sharpie brand markers. The balance between resistance to smudging and ability to remove the marker from the Addverb Areas appears to be the best. 

WARNING: Please test any marker before using by making a small mark on one of the Addverb Areas, letting it dry, and wiping off the test mark with at least 91% isopropyl alcohol. 

Q: Can I order more markers?

A: Of course, but don't you have a Sharpie brand marker laying around somewhere? (markers coming soon!)

Q: Can I use other wipes? Or, is there another way to clean the marker off of the Addverb Areas?

A: You can! We recommend that you use at least 91% isopropyl alcohol wipes available (here). Another way is to use bottled 91% or higher isopropyl alcohol with a cotton ball or pad to remove your writing from the Addverb Areas.

Q: Can I order more cleaning wipes?

A: You can order some more (here)!

Q: I can still see some letters that I tried to wipe off, what do I do?

A: Put at least 91% or higher isopropyl alcohol on a cotton ball or pad and rub the Addverb Areas in small circles.

Q: Will bottle cages affect the Addverb Areas?

A: If your bottle cages generally scratch up your normal bottles, yes, your bottle cages will scratch your Addverb Areas. The Addverb Areas are still functional, but we recommend that you DO NOT use bottle cages that scratch your other bottles.  

Q: Are your bottles dishwasher safe?

A: The bottles are top-rack dishwasher safe. However, (WARNING) please clean the marker off of the Addverb Areas before placing the Addverb Bottle in the dishwasher - the heat cycle of the dishwasher may bake the marker onto the Addverb Areas making the marker difficult or impossible to remove.

Q: Are your bottles BPA-free?

A: Yes, Addverb Bottles are LDPE #4, food grade plastic, which is BPA-free.

Q: Are your bottles recyclable? 

A: Yes, Addverb Bottles are recyclable. When your Addverb Bottle has reached its end, please give it a proper, respectful burial in your favorite recycling bin. 

Q: Why's my writing coming off when I workout at the gym?

A: Are you using a hand sanitizer while working out? Alcohol-based hand sanitizers may remove your writing from the Addverb Areas. 

Q: Can it be dangerous to ride/run and read at the same time?

A: YES!!! WARNING: please be careful when riding or running and reading your Addverb Bottle. We want you to be safe so you can train better and improve your results!
