I think I could beat it by copy-n-pasting typing in a GPX track. Would you like me to give it a go?

Re: Just cleaned my water bottles - UGHHHHH!

Well you have to follow the instructions in either case, but the instructions for the soda say ´Not to be used in drinking water,´ so given a choice when both are cheap and freely available I’d reserve the soda for drains and washing machines. ´It say "Not to be used in drinking water" th...
