In lieu of making the initial Clean Refill container purchase, customers can also use their own containers. If using your own container, choose the product you would like and the refill option on the purchase page and choose the number of ounces needed to fill the container you have. The amount must be equal to, or less than, the amount that your container can hold. Refunds cannot be provided for product purchases that exceed the amount your preferred containers can hold.
You can then request empty container pick-up and product delivery. Once you order the amount of product your container can hold, Clean Refill staff will pick up your container on the following delivery day, fill it and return it to your door on the subsequent delivery day. The fee for container pick-up and delivery is $4.00, or free for orders of $60 or more.
Customers can also pre-order their product amount for their container and come to a Clean Refill pop-up to fill it. (Pre-ordering is required to ensure your product will be available at the pop-up).
When using your own container, it’s important to properly clean and sanitize the container between uses. Once you have washed your container, follow the below steps to properly sanitize it.
To sterilize glass and metal containers and lids:
Glass and metal containers can be sanitized in a dishwasher with a sanitize setting. You can also utilize a UV light to ensure your containers are fully sanitized.
Another option is to submerge the containers in a large pot of hot water and bring to a boil. Boil for about 15 minutes. Remove from water with clean and sterilized tongs. Allow to air dry completely before use.
To sterilize plastic containers and lids:
Plastic containers can be sanitized in a dishwasher with a sanitize setting. You can also utilize a UV light to ensure your containers are fully sanitized.
Another option is to soak the containers in hydrogen peroxide (3%) for about 10-15 minutes, give them a quick rinse and leave them out to dry in a clean environment. Or, spray with isopropyl alcohol (70%) and leave to air dry in a clean environment.
