How do I clean out a hip flask?!

Question: How do I clean out a hip flask!?
About a year ago, I got a hip flask but lost it, I have only found it today, the problem is that it had some whisky in when I lost it and I don't know how to clean it out!. I have filled it with boiling water as it is the only thing I can think of!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Fill it almost full of very hot water, a tiny bit of detergent, then shake it to make the detergent dissolve!. Then you can let it sit so a while and empty!. As the whiskey was in there for so long, you might want to repeat this a few times!.

After you've done that it, it's a good idea to rinse in with cold water to make sure all the detergent is gone!.

Then just leave the top off and let it dry :-)

This is how I clean my flask, and I've never had any problems!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

It shouldn't really need cleaning as the high alcohol level of the whisky would mean it wouldn't have gone off!. However if you want to get rid of the taste of whisky in there you could do what we do to clean decanters and fill it half full with warm water and then drop in a denture cleaning tablet!. Let it fizz and soak for a while- ten minutes or so- and then rinse thoroughly with cold water!. Keep rinsing until you are sure all the tablet has gone as you don't want your best malt flavoured with spearmint!.
I agree with the previous poster though, I've never cleaned my flask!.
Hope this helps!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You really wouldn't need to, the alcohol content of liquor is enough to kill just about anything!. I've had a flask for about 8 years now and haven't cleaned it once!.

If you're switching alcohol types I'd just give it a thorough rinse, possibly with boiling water if it's particularly grimey!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Try vinegar!. Just fill the flask up and let it sit for a while!. Then dump and rinse it out with boiling water!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

Rinse it with water, then cheap whisky, then water!. It'll be fine!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
