How do you get a dent out of a metal water bottle?

How do you get dents out of metal?
Boiling Water: Simply pouring boiling water over your dents can be enough to pop them out in many cases. That’s because the built-up stress in a dent is relieved when you apply heat and the metal or aluminum can relax enough to pop back out to its original shape.
Does denting a Hydro Flask ruin it?
Hydro Flasks are made from an inner and outer wall of stainless steel. In between these two walls they suck out all the air and create a vacuum. Dropping and denting the metal of your Hydro Flask doesn’t mean that air can get into the vacuum. This is why dropping your Hydro Flask generally doesn’t ruin the insulation.
