Milk bottle cleaning procedure

From EcoReality

  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, shake the water vigorously around in the bottle, empty and repeat.
    2. Check for any milk residue and if necessary, soak bottle in hot, soapy water.
    3. If available, use a bottle brush on the neck of the bottle.
    4. Use a wash cloth or bottle brush on the rings around the outside of the neck of the bottle.
    5. 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!
