Adding things to the water will only make for some fuzzy water/juice the next time you use it. I have only used water in mine, and it works great. I can take it off after a ride and not worry about it growing something...

i use mine at least 4-5 times a week (mostly cycling, which i do a lot)...cleaning is simple...drain, rinse, wash (i use a bleach-water combination), dry (i place mine in the strainer with an egg beater inside, with the bite valve off the straw and the fill lid open).

EDIT:i don't always wash it, but i always rinse and keep it dry in between uses. Even if you use just water, there's a potential for nasty growth if you don't keep it dry or store water in it for along time

As far as cleaning goes, denture cleaner tablets are the bomb. In addition if you store your bladders in the fridge with water they stay nice.

hey is your mule the newer or older version? the newer one has the little dealio for your headphones cord to poke through and a pocket for the player.

i allready have the older style mule, and i love it, but i wish i had the newer one. if you have the newer one i might buy it and sell mine...haha...

what color is yours?

Long rides my man, long rides! Texas is hot and I'm not use to sweating out 4 lbs of water (weighed myself after a full Saturday of riding). Figure I might as well add as much as I lose right? No need to get heat stroke and fall off my pretty bike.

Found the best way to work it. Put on the camel-pack full of ice, then jacket, then backpack. The camel pack is like an air conditioner, when the heat builds up the ice melts and viola, water! Fits good and I drained it twice last weekend riding, just got ice at bathroom/gas stops! This thing is a must if you sweat a lot and are not use to the heat/humidity.
