Help and FAQs

We’re always happy to help with your KeepCup product and order questions. Take a look through our frequently asked questions below - you might find the answer without needing to contact us.

Can I amend, change or cancel my order?

We operate a fast turnaround in our warehouse to get our orders out as quickly as possible, and generally dispatch the next business day. If you need to make changes or would like to cancel, please contact us as soon as possible with your order number and change request details. If we receive your request prior to dispatch, we’ll do our best to make the change or cancellation.

For cancellations, please call your nearest KeepCup office.

How do I return my order?

We encourage you to shop carefully, as returns add to the carbon footprint of your order through transport.

KeepCups are food storage items, so we can only accept returns of faulty products, or items that have been unused, in its original packaging, and are in a re-saleable condition.

You must notify us within 14 days, and return the unused item to us (at your cost) within 30 days. If 30 days have passed since your order was delivered, unfortunately we can’t offer you a refund for anything other than a product fault. 

We do not accept items for exchange. If you would like to exchange an item for a different size or colour, you'll need to place a new order and return the original item. 

If we accept your return, we will refund the amount you paid for the item. The cost of shipping fees paid may be refunded if your local consumer laws require. 

If the products are returned used, damaged or do not have all original packaging, we reserve the right to refuse your refund. 

We cannot accept the return of any customised product due to change of mind.

How do I care for my KeepCup or Bottle?

Want to know if you can put your KeepCup in the dishwasher? Or your bottle in the freezer? We’ve put together a full care and guide for all KeepCup products with everything you need to know:

Can I use KeepCup Bottle with all different types of beverages?

Yes! KeepCup Bottle lets you caffeinate, hydrate and everything in between.

Take care when using carbonated or sparkling beverages in bottles. They naturally want to expand and become gas, which causes pressure build up when fully sealed for long periods of time - particularly if jostled with movement. Open the cap slowly and hold firmly in case of “popping” with gas release.

How long does KeepCup Bottle Thermal keep beverages hot and cold?

Bottle Thermal: 2 Hours Hot, 8 hours Cold

We approach product design thinking about drinking pleasure, reuse and occasion rather than extreme temperature duration.

KeepCup Thermal stainless steel, double wall vacuum insulation is designed to keep beverage temperatures stable for an extended duration of time.

Duration depends on a few things, like volume, mouth opening diameter, lid insulation, room temperature when testing, and exactly which beverage temperature is considered “hot” or “cold” by definition.

Independent testing of KeepCup Thermal was conducted to determine how long it took boiling water from a kettle to cool down to 60C. As you can see from the results below, the larger the volume of hot liquid, the slower it cools down. The same premise applies to cold beverages and temperature longevity as well.

KeepCup Bottles, which are larger again in volume at 18oz / 530ml & 22oz/660ml, keep temperatures hotter and colder for longer.

The fact that it takes so much longer for a cold beverage to get to room temperature, is as much due to perception of temperature, than duration. Cold beverages are closer to ambient room temperature than hot and as heat transfer occurs, we are more aware of the difference in hot liquid change.

Enough of the science, if you like it cold, the more ice the better. If you have not finished the coffee in your KeepCup within the hour, were you ever going to?

Is the KeepCup Bottle leakproof?


If your bottle is leaking from between the bottle lid and cup base itself, or from the bottle cap please check to make sure silicone gaskets are fitted correctly.

Can I put my KeepCup Bottle in the dishwasher? 

We recommend you handwash only for all stainless steel components to preserve the surface finish.

Plastic is dishwasher safe in the top rack. Place small components in the cutlery tray or basket to avoid damage. Note: If you have a KeepCup Bottle Original made from plastic, grease or oil from other dishwasher items may cause clear plastic items to cloud, and turmeric will also cause staining.

Can I put Helix KeepCup or Bottle in the dishwasher? 

We recommend you handwash only for all stainless steel components to preserve the surface finish.

Plastic is dishwasher safe in the top rack. Place small components in the cutlery tray or basket to avoid damage. Note: If you have a KeepCup Bottle Original made from plastic, grease or oil from other dishwasher items may cause clear plastic items to cloud, and turmeric will also cause staining.

For a thorough clean, please mix your own cleaning solution of 1/4 cup vinegar (or lemon juice) and 3/4 tablespoon of baking soda in cup. Remove the silicone gaskets and place into the cup with the solution. Top with boiling water, leave overnight. Wash clean in warm soapy water and rinse thoroughly.

When not in use, store with lid and cap off. This allows silicone seal to air dry, avoiding odour.

Does Bottle Thermal retain the smell of coffee?

This will depend on regularity of cleaning and use. We use the highest quality food-grade stainless steel 18/8 (304) which has been electropolished so you can enjoy the full flavour of your drink. It creates a microscopically smooth, mirror-like surface (compared to just polished), so there's no flavour taint or metallic after taste. It also means no ceramic painted coating is necessary. 

Can I put KeepCup Bottle in the microwave or freezer?

All Thermal products are made of stainless steel, which is a metal and therefore cannot be microwaved.

The clear plastic cup is microwavable without the lid, to 100°C / 212°F.

Don't put them in the freezer. Freezing temperatures can damage the double wall and vacuum seal of stainless-steel products, and can warp plastic if accidentally overfilled, which affects the sealing. To carry the coldest of contents in your KeepCup, fill with ice and enjoy. Our Thermal varieties will keep cold for up to 8 hours.

Does KeepCup Bottle fit in cup holders?

Yes. KeepCup Helix range fits in nearly all car cup holders. For specific dimensions across our range, check out our size guide.

Which size should I choose?

From espressos and piccolos to lattes and long blacks, we have a range of KeepCups in materials and sizes to suit every taste.

Please visit our size guide for detailed information to help you make your choice.

Why plastic? Are KeepCups BPA and BPS free?

You can find information about all our materials, including why we use plastic, on our materials page.

All KeepCups are free from BPA, BPS, phthalates, lead and cadmium. We regularly independently lab test all KeepCup products to meet various global food safe requirements which include; EU, FDA, Prop 65, BPA & BPS Free, Chinese GB.

Where are KeepCups manufactured, and what are they made from?

We manufacture locally where possible, however some products and materials require parts from China. All KeepCup products are hand assembled in our local warehouses in Melbourne and London.
We carefully consider the materials used for each component of KeepCup products across our range. You can go deep in our manufacturing origin and materials by part in our detailed guides below.

Where do you ship from, and how long will it take?

We deliver to 170 countries around the world and offer different shipping options to meet your needs as listed below. At this time, we do not offer Express Shipping as a delivery option. If your order is urgent, please contact our customer service team and we will do our best to assist if possible.

We dispatch from three locations - Melbourne, Idaho and London - and your order will be shipped from the closest hub. At the moment our carrier partners are expecting longer delays and unpredictable delivery timeframes, so it's important to check local delivery expectations kept up to date by the carriers. We will work as usual to dispatch your order in 1-2 business days.

Australia Post

Royal Mail





The timeframes are estimates only and delivery time may be longer to some destinations. Delivery estimates commence from date of dispatch, not date of order. While we strive for next business day, during busy periods it can take up to 5 business days to dispatch.



We are not responsible for any delays caused by destination customs clearance processes or postage strikes. We are unable to re-direct orders once items have been dispatched.

Because customs policies vary from country to country, orders may be subject to local customs charges. Any customs, import duties and associated fees are the responsibility of the recipient and are charged once the parcel reaches its country of destination. This cost is not included in our freight cost, and VAT will not be charged on your order. If goods are above the threshold and customs entry is required, our logistics partner will charge an additional admin handling fee for customs clearance. For more information about your country's custom policies, please contact your local customs office.

Why is my KeepCup leaking?

KeepCup was conceived as an easy to use product that replicates the functionality of a disposable cup. As such, KeepCups are splashproof and not a fully sealed container, which means it will leak if tipped upside down or if the closure plug catches and pulls open.

If your KeepCup is overfilled, tipped vertically or upside down, the plug hole will leak.



If it's leaking from under the lid when you’re drinking from the cup, it could be due to the temperature of the liquid.

When drinking tea or black coffee, keep in mind that steam from boiling liquid will cause pressure to build up inside the cup, and may affect the seal of the lid.

We recommend that you wait 30 seconds after pouring boiling water before putting your lid on. The steam that escapes will prevent the plastic softening, which causes the lid to detach from the cup.

Keep the plug vent open for liquid over 65°C.



You may have the incorrect lid that isn’t fit for the cup. The old skool lids and lids for KeepCup Original products cannot be used on glass. Lids for glass are available via our website.



This is our newest lid and has been designed with flexibility and machine cleaning in mind.

The lids have plastic memory and will loosen with a bit of use, but they’ll snap back to their tight fit once they’ve been run through a dishwasher (on the top shelf).

If you don't have access to a dishwasher, you can submerge the lid in a bowl of boiling water and let the water cool overnight - it should have the same results.



From time to time, we do experience product faults. Run your hand around the rim of the cup and the inside surface of the lid - is there a bump or nick, either on the rim of the cup or just inside the lid? This could be causing the leak. If you see something that looks like a fault, please contact our customer service team with the following:

  1. Photos showing the fault
  2. A video of the lid being placed on and removed
  3. Order details: Retailer, time and date of your order, or order number if purchased through
  4. Hold onto the KeepCup as we will only replace the faulty components to minimise waste, or we may ask you to return the cup and lid for testing

What is your product warranty and product guarantee?

KeepCup warrants our shall be, and remain free from, defects in materials and workmanship for a period of 12 months from the date of delivery.

KeepCup will replace any defective item or product component at its sole cost, including delivery, upon receipt of satisfactory evidence of the defective item or part.

The warranty does not extend to any fair wear and tear, however we voluntarily cover cork band and accidental glass breakages 30 days from the date of purchase.

For any claim to be recognised, customers must notify KeepCup immediately and provide an order number or receipt number as proof of purchase. We will provide you with an exchange, refund or repair at our discretion.

How can I remove stains or smells?

All KeepCup products come straight off a production line and should be washed thoroughly before use.  There can be a plastic smell when the parts have been sealed for a long period, which will be resolved by washing. Be assured all our products are independently lab tested to ensure they're free from BPA, BPS, phthalates including DEHP, lead and cadmium.

If your KeepCup has become stained or smells from particular drinks, lipsticks or extended time between use and washing, we recommend trying one of these simple and effective remedies.



Lemon soaking:

  1. Cut up a lemon and place the slices into your cup, then fill with boiling water and leave overnight to soak
  2. In the morning, rinse and then clean with a mild detergent and warm water using a cloth

Vinegar and baking soda:

  1. Wash your cup base with a mild detergent and warm water using a cloth
  2. Pour 1/4 cup of baking soda into the cup and slowly fill it with white distilled vinegar to about halfway
  3. Add hot water and fill to the top of the cup
  4. Let the mix rest for 15 minutes before rinsing out



If coffee or tea drips have stained the outside surface of your KeepCup Thermal, we have found the following to be highly effective.

Baking soda:

  1. Create a thick paste of bicarb soda and lemon juice, covering the affected area completely
  2. Sit the cup on a dish in sunlight for 24 hours to dry out
  3. Rinse and wash thoroughly by hand

Finish tablet:

  1. Dissolve a Finish dishwashing tablet in boiling water in a bowl
  2. Pop the cup-base in and soak overnight
  3. Rinse and wash thoroughly by hand with a cloth to clear the stains

In between use, it’s important to ensure the KeepCup is kept dry and stored with the lid off to avoid any unwanted smells developing.

What do I do if my cork band is broken?

Cork is a delicate natural material, so it will not last forever, and you will likely notice colour variations over time and with use.

If your cork band is damaged within 30 days of purchase, send a photo of the damaged cork to our customer service team.

  1. Include your order number and date of purchase
  2. Provide address details to send the replacement part
  3. Please retain the other parts of your KeepCup as we only replace damaged components

For broken cork bands after 30 days, replacement cork bands can be purchased via our website.



Broken cork bands are usually caused by repeated or careless removal of the cork band will cause it to break and crack. We advise not to remove the cork band from the cup and wash gently by hand only.

If the cork band becomes waterlogged, it may expand and slip off the glass tumbler. If this happens, just leave it upside down in a sunny spot and it will be good as new in no time. Cork can weaken if it is handled when still wet so let the cork thoroughly dry prior to its next use.
