Fw: Stainless Loop Cap - waterlogged

From the complaints department - sent over a month ago and no reply.  Emailed the eBay vendor today... maybe they'll respond somehow:

Subject: Stainless Loop Cap - waterlogged

I received my first 18oz Klean Kanteen very excitedly last week.  I specifically ordered and paid extra for a stainless steel lid (loop cap) because I wanted to avoid any plastic parts in contact with my water.  However, the very first time I washed the lid (by hand), the inside of the cap filled with water and now makes a sloshing sound.  It seems impossible to open and clean inside - meaning whatever dishwater is trapped in there is going to eventually fester and grow algae, mold, etc.  I am extremely disturbed that something like this would happen to a product known for its cleanliness (or, perhaps, "kleanliness", which may be something different) and non-toxic durability.
 
I understand that this is the reason you recommend against dishwasher use with the caps.  However, since we don't even have a dishwasher, the cap was only washed by hand along with the bottle and immersed for just a short time.
 
I'm not using the bottle now, and I'm wondering whether the PP#5 lid is a one-piece design, and if so, whether it might be possible to exchange one for this useless, water-logged stainless steel lid.  :-(
 
I'd appreciate any help you can offer.

  1. I found your entry from 2008. I just discovered to same problem in a plastic cap--did you ever find a solution?

  2. Yes, there is a PP#5 one-piece loop cap; a very simple design that doesn't get waterlogged. I found a source on eBay and although they were a little bit expensive, I just went out and bought four of them so we would have them around for the two KK's we own (since then we have added a third). Good luck!

Are Jews an "underrepresented community" in children’s publishing?

I applied for a writing award yesterday. I'm not going to get it, but that's not what I wanted to share with you. Here's what I wanted to share. This box:   I stared at this box for a long, long time. And then I decided not to check it. Even though I believe people like me truly are underrepresented, we probably wouldn’t fit the definition in other people's minds. Why? Well, because we're European. Because we are white. Because as everybody knows, Jews control the media. (do we???) If anything, some people say, Jews are over -represented in publishing. And yet. Some definitions are careful not to include people like me. Like this random definition from the State of California which defines underrepresented for some very specific business purposes as: "an individual who self-identifies as Black, African American, Hispanic, Latino, Asian, Pacific Islander, Native American, Native Hawaiian, or Alaska Native, or who self-identi
