Can steripen be used in hot beverages?

Responded on

I'm not sure, but you'd most likely just want to use it on the cool water you use to make the hot beverage first. This both negates the question and keeps you from having to clean a dirty steripen.

If you can't stick your hand in it, you probably shouldn't stick the pen in it. Additionally, unless your hot beverage is hot water, the pen can have reduced effectiveness. Because it works with UV light, the darker a beverage/more sediment it has in it, the less effective the pen is and thus the greater risk of something surviving.

If you are making hot beverages, just boil them and that negates your need for the pen.
