No matter how much I tried to clean my system after use, I still got mold growing in the tube and sack. This was the perfect solution for a decent price (compared to the camelbak cleaning kit, this is a better buy).
The pipet-like brush worked like a charm. It fit perfectly in the tube and came right out along with all the mold.
The only suggestion I have is if Platypus made some device to hold the sack opening open (like the camelbak kit), because it takes several days for the sack to dry.
This cleaning kit works great for the platypus 1L bottle. The brush easily gets to all parts of the bag, except at the top immediately under the opening. The small tube brush is perfect for cleaning the inside of normal drinking straws that I reuse.
Don't think just buy it. If you have ever had a bladder sitting in your pack you know how hard it is to really get it clean. You have to have the tools to get that stench and taste out...and these are the tools
Thank goodness for the tube cleaner! I've been having problems with mold developing in the tube, near the mouth piece and this kit completely got rid of it. The larger brush is also great to get out any left over Nuun or Gu slime.
If you drink a lot in the mountains and use water systems whatever which one (I use Platypus and Osprey) this kit is thing to go for - really works and helps to maintain in good conditon water containers !!!
Just got the Platy 1 and 2l bottles so they didn't need cleaning.
Had a Blackhawk that needed cleaning and got the job done easily with the "Right tool"
I have been using platys for 10 years and never had a cleaning kit. Finally got one and i am glad i did!
I actually bought this to clean out my 1L water bottles - it works like a charm. Definitely a worthwhile purchase.
