Turkey legs
Hi all,

I've just procured a new camelbak for long summer training runs. Used it today, loved it. I've rinsed the bag & left it filled with a Milton sterilising solution over night.

After my last one went mouldy after the first few uses, will this be enough to prevent a repeat?

You could also try keeping the bladder in the freezer, that's supposed to kill germs so it might work on mould as well.

I've not had problems with mould with mine. But I would definitely recommend filling it and then freezing it for when you take it out in this hot weather. Always jubbly to have ice cold water down your back and throat!
