Cleaning bubba kegs?

How does everyone clean their bubba kegs at the resorts? I figure it's ok to use the tap water to do the initial clean with soap, but do people use tap water to rinse them out or do you use bottled water. Just curious :)

Last thing I do before I head to bed....wash out the Bubba Mug. A little soap and hot water and I let it air dry, upside down, on a slant propped up against the lid so it air dries. Nice and fresh in the A.M.

I tended to drink the same thing, so I would just pour an inch of water in, from the bottle, slap the cap on and give it a shake. Air dry overnight

I read where someone ran bottled water through the coffee maker, and used that with a touch of soap to wash out their Bubba, and then let it dry upside down... obviously not boiling hot water, but at least warm enough to wash with, and they felt better not using the tap water :0

The inside of the Bubba is stainless steel.... so nothing bad is gonna live on it, after the water dries. One benefit of using a stainless-lined drinking vessel vs. a plastic one, perhaps. So, I wouldn't hesitate to wash it with a little dish soap and tap water, and let it dry thoroughly before using it again.

I've taken a little ziploc with dishsoap to wash it out every night and rinse with bottle water and I have taken Clorox wipes and wiped them out and then rinsed. The wipes seemed to be the easier method.

We also use the tap water to rinse with and let it air dry overnight and ready to go the next day!! We use the stainless ones too. Never had an issue. They are packed as I type to head tp Punta Cana this Saturday and already checking prices for March!!
