Cleaning Huel shaker

Hi all,

I usually take pretty good care of my Huel shaker, making sure to rinse it out thoroughly every time I use it. However, I accidentally left it for a day or two while away, and now my shaker has taken on an interesting odour that I can’t seem to get rid of. Is there any way to remove this, or should I just toss it and buy a new one?

Thanks in advance for your tips and help.

Hi. I would recycle and buy a new one.

I would search on the internet this problem but with protein shakers, is more common in the gym culture and also the protein shakes smell much worse after several hours

Have you tried soaking in a saline solution? Or Milton?

Could do, cheers! I’d like to avoid buying a new one if possible - this one is only a couple of weeks old as I lost my old one haha!

Soak for 24 hrs

Ah, would definitely try the above tips then :grin:

Dishwasher normally solves for me.

That should do the trick


Try white vinegar. Not distilled vinegar (which is for cooking).

I left a shaker for a week once. It was a bitch to clean. I don’t remember it having a bad smell after. I think I soaked it for an hour or so in fairy liquid and then gave it a thorough scrub and it was fine after.

Ah this is such a nightmare, love these ideas from the team here. Good Huelkeeping newsletter maybe needed? @Coup can be editor.

Going forward, if you know you’re going to leave your shaker - e.g. leaving office and remember your shaker is on your desk and you really cba to clean it - then just pop the cap. This will defeat the worst of it when you return in a day or two.


Mmmm… That old editing problem is back again @hunzas :roll_eyes:

I once left one of mine for a couple of days while away and it was stinking as well. I just soaked it in hot water and fairy liquid for a while and scrubbed it, smell was still a bit there but went after a while. I always now try and rinse it asap when away.
Normally after drinking Huel I find I waste a lot of water rinsing my shakers out cleaning them though.


I part fill my shaker with water after my Huel meal, give it a shake then empty and wash in hand hot water with wul. Quick rinse under the tap and it’s done.

Try adding Branson Pickle to your next smoothie using the smelly shaker, you wont notice the shaker odour. I believe this is a regular Hueligan solution.

P.s. please don’t actually do this :wink:


Good idea @Bee that works a treat thanks

I think it’s @Coup that needs advice on how to wash up

I beg your pardon?

I just get the impression you need help washing up :wink: :rofl:

Ok I cut and pasted the wrong quote :woman_facepalming:t3: :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl:

Let the ribbing commence. I’m too lazy to edit my comment.
