Thermal Mug – for every tea and coffee lover
What are thermal mugs?
A thermal cup or a travel mug is a type of mug that has some qualities of a vacuum flask. It is portable (sometimes with a handle or loop for more comfortable transportation), it has a screw lid and is often leak-proof. Many have double-walled construction that better preserves the temperature of your beverages. Insulating properties give thermal cups a huge advantage over traditional water bottles.
Travel and thermal mugs can be used for hot beverages like tea or coffee or for cold drinks such as water or iced tea. They can be made from stainless steel or plastic and come in a range of colours, capacities and styles - some are more sporty, some more elegant.
How do I clean my thermal mug?
It is very important to clean your travel mug regularly. Otherwise, it may start to smell bad and mould may start to grow on the inside of your cup. It may be difficult to come up with a practical approach to cleaning a thermal cup, however following the simple tips below can help:
- Mix some warm water with a few drops of dishwashing liquid in a bowl. Let the lid soak in this solution for about 10 minutes. Once this time has passed, rinse any soapy water from the lid.
- While soaking the lid, clean the cup itself using dish soap, warm water, and a sponge. However, stay away from using chlorine or bleach and too hot water because they might harm the interior of the stainless steel, thereby diminishing the insulating properties of your thermal mug.
How to choose the best thermal cup for me?
Choosing a perfect travel mug may be difficult as there are so many different options available on the market. Our goal at Kulina is to provide our clients with the widest range of items possible but all of our products are durable and made of food-safe materials. We offer you travel mugs and thermal cups from reputable manufacturers like Eva Solo, Stelton, and Kambukka. But if you don't know which travel mug to choose have a look at some important factors to consider when purchasing a thermal cup:
- Heat retention and the purpose of your cup
How well drinks are kept hot or cold might vary depending on the insulation type. Decide whether you need your coffee to stay hot during your travel to the office or during the whole day of hiking. Some cups are better as thermal cups for commuting or going around town, while others are better for long trips.
- Material and style
Manufacturers frequently use steel or stainless steel to produce thermal cups. The double-walled technology effectively maintains the temperature of liquids, and both materials are durable and ecological. They are also easy to clean and do not absorb odours. However, you may also want to buy a cup with a body made of plastic as these travel mugs are much more stylish.
Thermal cups have flip-up or screw-on lids, both of which work well to seal the container, although screw-on versions are more reliable and long-lasting. Make sure the lid is easy to clean, won't leak, and won't readily come off. Additionally, the spot should be comfortable for you to drink from.
