New year, new you…right? It’s the third week of January and your resolutions may have gone out of the window already, but there’s an easy one to keep at. I’m sure we could all do with drinking more water – I definitely could. That’s what drew me to this product and thought I would give it a try to see if it ups my h2o intake. A flask which has a juicer in the bottom, joined by a twist-offable bottom section (see what I did there with the title? Hey?) to make drinking water a little more interesting.
This product is pretty self explanatory…rather than having a bottle to pop your water in, there’s a separation element involved to flavour your drinkies. The idea -I think- is aimed at something like a lemon/orange/lime so you can fully use the juicer. For this example let’s go with a lemon; so you chop your lemon in half, turn the bottle upside down so you can fully get your juice on, keep the fruit half inside, pop the bottom cap on then turn the bottle the right side up and fill with water. You can then refill your bottle with the lemon half still in there throughout the day until you feel the flavour has faded. And it does work!
Although the zestier fruits are the main angle for the Zingo, I think it would also work with popping strawberries, raspberries (all the fun berries), cucumber or mint in there. Thanks to the sieve divider you wouldn’t get any floaty bits in your drink, but the infused flavour would still come through nicely. For me that’s a great thing! As my friends could tell you, I am really not a big water drinker and having a flavour there is a motivator for me to hydrate more regularly.
My problem is remembering to take the fruit out of the bottom segment but I guess that’s just a habit to pick up. Luckily I haven’t gone back the day after to refill using yesterday’s fruit still in there, but I forget it’s not just a regular bottle! When it comes to cleaning it’s pretty easy to do as everything separates out and nothing is fiddly. I’m not a fan of products which require a special brush to get into certain nooks and crannies, so this being a regular unscrew and scrub is perfect.
The size of the bottle is nice and portable, holding a volume of 650ml (or 22fl oz for those of you out there who like a good oz). Helpfully, as a bottle with two compartments, this is also leak-proof! The sections have a rubber seal so unless that wears away you will be pretty safe, just make sure you screw the sections tightly, or on your head/in your bag be it – but that’s the same with any bottle.
The NHS advises that we drink 6-8 glasses of water a day, about 1.2 litres. If you drink two Zingo-fuls then you are nearly there – doesn’t seem like much of an effort now, does it?
You can grab your Zingo directly from their website (below) or via Ocado, Get Nice Look For Fashion, or Octer.

Thanks a lot!
Hiya, sorry I’m not sure what you mean…discuss water bottles? Or which topics? Twitter is useful if you search key words.
