Our Full Line of Products
Flipsi’s solution is patent-pending, with no other bottle like it on the market. Some bottles focus on cleaning through multiple removable caps yet still contain hard to reach surfaces, while others tout the soft feel and flexibility of silicone but are not designed to be flipped inside-out for easy cleaning and drying. None have the unique, simple solution of Flipsi.

Flipsi Bottle’s History
Flipsi founders Chris and Jeff Plott are brothers. They are ten years in age difference and were living hundreds of miles apart, yet two years ago they found themselves struggling with the same problem.
Jeff, a student, was in college. He was going to class and in his free time liked working out and playing volleyball. Chris and his wife were parents of two and both worked full time. With two young children and two working parents, Chris was just trying to keep up.
One evening while talking on the phone, Chris and Jeff found themselves complaining about the same thing – cleaning bottles! Jeff was struggling to clean his reusable sport bottles after making his post-workout protein shake. Chris on the other hand was struggling to clean baby bottles after picking up his kids from daycare. Both engineers, they knew that there had to be a better way.
Soon after, Jeff came out to visit Chris while on his summer break from school. The two went out for a run when it hit them – why not make a bottle that flips inside out!
Jeff went back to school, made the first prototype and shortly thereafter Flipsi was born.
