Milk bottle cleaning procedure

We clean all reusable containers according to CFIA standards, but you can help make that as simple and as reliable as possible.

  1. After using some of the milk, periodically shake vigorously so that the separated "cream ring" is dissolved into the remaining milk.
  2. As soon as possible after emptying the bottle, rinse twice with cold water.
    Hot water smears the butterfat, making subsequent cleaning more difficult.
  3. Wash bottle with dish soap in the hottest water possible:
    1. Half fill bottle with hot-hot-hot soapy water, and shake the water vigorously around in the bottle.
    2. Use the special bottle brush labeled "MILK ONLY" on the bottle, stroking the inside of the bottle up and down on all four sides.
    3. Use the bottle brush on the rings around the outside of the neck of the bottle.
    4. Rinse thoroughly in hot-hot-hot water.
  4. Be sure to clean the cap thoroughly in the same hot soapy water.
  5. Air-dry the bottle and cap. Only when the bottle and cap are completely dry, is it okay to place cap on the bottle.
    If you leave water in the bottle and put the cap on, this creates an environment for mould to grow.

Although we re-wash all returns, bottles that are returned dirty are subject to an additional fee.

Please help us by returning completely clean and dry bottles -- thank you!
