water water everywhere, but how to avoid the stink

I'm trying to be good and drink lots of water. I feel better when I do. I work in an office, so I bought one of those knockoff nalgene bottles from target so i can have ice water and not be in danger of spilling it on my computer. 2 problems - how do I keep my desk free of bottle sweat, and how do I keep my bottle from smelling?

the sweat: i'm tired of wet paper towels on my desk, but I like my water cold. any other ideas? or an alternative to the nalgene bottle that is less likely to sweat? (and smell?)
the smell: someone asked here
how to get rid of the moldy smell (if it gets really nasty, I run it thru the dishwasher. is this ok?) - but i want to keep my bottle clean without having to wash it every day. i know it should only takes a minute to wash it, but my office has practically no hot water, also people leave the sponge in the sink all the time, so it reeks, and I'm not going to go out and buy more sponges, or be the freak that keeps his own sponge. is there anything I can do so quickly that I'd have time to do it even when I look up and realize that I'm gonna have to run for my train?
