I use a camelbak. I just rinse it out a few times and leave the cap open. Its always completely dry the next day. I get no problems with it getting too dirty.

Maybe I might invest in a Camelbak instead then..

We've had two bags for two years, and I don't remember ever having a problem. They are both just cheap bags from Target. But the white vinegar suggestion should actually work really well. :)

Been using the same camelback for five years now and always use baking soda to clean it, works a treat and no after taste.
