Double walled plastic cup with lid and straw

I picked up a Double walled plastic(BPA free) cup with lid and straw at CVS yesterday. I've been wanting one to take with on car rides and to go shopping for a long time. We buy bottled water and usually take that but recently we got filters for our Brita pitcher. I want to start taking along filtered water and leave the bottled stuff for my boyfriend (he takes 2 bottles to work everyday). Does anyone else have one of these types of cups? Do you like it compared to regular cups or water bottles?

We got DD several of these to take to college with her. We had someone put her name and polka-dots in her school colors on them for her. We also got her the coffee cup ones. She loves them all. She does dishes in the bathroom sink of her dorm room and they all clean up easily.
The ones we bought have a screw on lid and the straw is made of the same, sturdy material as the cup. I have dropped or knocked DD's off of the counter a few times onto ceramic tiled floors and they have not cracked at all.

Front side of DD's cup. the back and sides are polka dotted.

My only concern was the straw - how to get it clean since you can't force anything into it to physically wash it.
As far as washing the straw is concerned...
1. Wash it daily. Don't let it sit over night.
2. Either use a nipple brush for baby bottles or a clean pipe cleaner to scrub it.
3. Soak it in hot soapy water.
