​How To Clean Your Bombilla for Mate

Have you ever Wondered how to Properly Sanitize your Bombilla for the Mate?

This utensil is frequently used and for that reason, it needs a correct disinfection. Mainly for hygiene, and also to prevent it from getting clogged with yerba.

We recommend doing this deep cleaning once a month, it's very easy!

We're going to need:

  • Boiled water
  • Baking soda (two tablespoons)
  • Swabs
  • Alcohol


  1. Disassemble the bombilla and put it in a container.
  2. Add the baking soda and water.
  3. Soak for 30 minutes.

Then rinse them and finish cleaning them inside with an alcohol soaked swab, you can also remove the dirt from the outside with a sponge. Then rinse them again, dry them and they are ready for a new mate!

"Pampa Direct is a fantastic online provider of Argentinian products. I ordered a couple of Yerba Mate teas and their gourd with a bombilla. I’ve received a huge package from Argentina in about a week after my order (and I live in Europe). The shipping was extremely fast and all the products arrived well-wrapped and in great condition. I didn’t expect that, honestly. I’ve been drinking Yerba Mate teas since 2015 and I’ve tried a lot of them. Pampa Direct has a great variety of products, fast worldwide shipping, and awesome customer support. You can easily find lots of positive reviews about their products."

"Pampa Direct is a new store selling yerba mate, and it’s already the best one I’ve come across. They ship worldwide, have the largest selection of brands (brands no other store sells online), and some of the lowest prices I’ve ever seen. After submitting my order I was quickly sent a confirmation email. Then, the next day, an email with my tracking link. My package was delivered in just 4 days (May 13 – May 17). It arrived in a large cardboard box, I hurried to open it and was happy to see everything in perfect condition. Everything from the products they offer, the purchasing process, the shipping times, the prices, and even the customer support were all exceptionally great. Overall, a wonderful experience from beginning to end without even the slightest problem. If you haven’t shopped at Pampa Direct yet, you’re wasting your time and money elsewhere."

"In Italy it was impossibile to find high-quality, handmade mates. Now, thanks to Pampa Direct, everything an Italian matero could desire is easily avalaible in Italy, our 'Belpaese'. Fabulous personalized imperial mate gourds with an almighty traditional big bombilla. That is what I got, but you can purchase -or request!- everything a real mate lover would have. Thank you Pampa Direct! You are the best professionals in the business!"
