If so, reinstall the seal and insert the tube into the inside of the thermos. Next, close the bottom of the thermos again by turning it. Reinstall the bolt with a screwdriver so that the thermos is positioned properly and tightly. After the stainless tube is covered with cloth, the thermos will function properly again.

How to care for a thermos so it doesn't leak easily

To care for your thermos so it doesn't leak easily, you can do the following steps:

1. Choose a quality thermos

Choose a thermos made from high quality and durable materials. Also make sure the lid is made of strong and tight material.

2. Check and clean regularly

Check the thermos periodically to ensure there are no cracks or damage to the lid or body of the thermos. Clean the thermos regularly in the right way to prevent the formation of scale or mold which can cause leaks.

3. Use it correctly

Use the thermos according to the instructions for use. Don't open the lid of the thermos too often, as this can cause the seal to become loose and increase the risk of leaks.

4. Don't overfill

Avoid filling the thermos too full, because the pressure from too much liquid can cause leaks.

5. Avoid excessive heating

Do not heat the thermos to a temperature that is too high, because this can damage the thermos material and cause leaks.

6. Save properly

Store the thermos in an upright position and not fall over, so as not to damage the internal structure which could cause leaks.

7. Use additional caps

If possible, use an additional lid or protector for the thermos to make it safer from the possibility of being dropped or pressed which could cause a leak.
