    When it gets a bit of algal growth setting in, like after being in the back of the truck for a week or two, fill w/water, then add a few ounces of bleach. Let it sit for a couple hours and all the crud should come out.

    Here's my two cents: If you need your camelback clean in a jiffy rinse with a cupful of baking soda and fill with warm water. This cleans fast and leaves no aftertaste once rinsed out.

    once your bladder is clean and fresh, keep it full of water in the fridge until ride day. upon returning, fill it up again and refrigerate until next ride. Basically, refrigerate your bladder at all times except when riding. This way, the algae never has a chance to get started. I have never had to clean my bladder in more than a year. it's leaving it partially filled with water in a hot car that gets it funky. it may seem like a hassle but it's really quite easy to just "fridge" the puppy!"

      I do the same, fill 'er up & into the 'fridge right when I get home, and it seems to work just fine. I know it sounds gross, but it's been literally years since i washed the bladder of my camelbak.

    hydrogen peroxide solution shaken around in the bladder, once funky, will kill all the anaerobic bacteria - i learned this from a company that deals in purified water; it leaves very little, if any, after taste - wind a thin cloth up like a pipe cleaner, soak in haydrogen peroxide and drag through the hose with a string or wire -

    PS - this could all be just BS, as i don't use a camelback - however i did drink through a long plastic tube after i lost my teeth on a bike when i was a kid and the pipe cleaner deal worked pretty well - hope it helps ;-)

    After a ride or a run, I use a small amount of mouthwash (mint - not reg listerine) I use sports drinks so they get pretty funky. This cleans the heck out of my Camelbak. I often add a few drops of lemon juice and then rinse before filling.
    I wonder if Miller Genuine Draft will work

    People love to make use of mountain bike and such done a good process for quality working. The desire for good return makes quality result in reply. The perfection also requires some help as use of water with some favorite drinks. The need for pay to write research paper is the good one for perfect going on.
