I foolishly put my "Tervis" type (rigid) straw in the dishwasher. When I pulled it out it was no longer straight. To fix it (straighten) the straw back, I put 2 metal kabob skewers inside the straw and ran it back through the dishwasher. The skewers held the straw straight when the plastic was heated up.

I have found that the easiest way for me to drink more water during the day is to fill up my largest Tervis(c) Tumbler. I use the straw and lid and refill it as needed. The secret is the wider straw. I wouldn't ever be able to drink that much water as quickly from a glass. The tumblers are nice since in the summer it will keep water cold, even in the blazing hot car.
For me I like to drink my water out of a large cup with a straw. I don't know what it is about the straw, maybe i'm pulling some type of Jedi mind trick on myself but using a straw helps me to get it down quicker therefore I am refilling that cup over and over to get more than my 8 glasses down. 91
