You've probably seen that a lot of people are going back to the old ways, like using glass bottles instead of plastic. But how do you clean them? Well, I'm here to tell you that it's easy! All you need is some hot soapy water and a bit of elbow grease. Here's what you need to do:
A scrub brush with a handle is best for this task, as it will keep your hands safely away from sharp edges and sticky substances. A soft-bristled brush is ideal because it won't scratch the glass bottle.
Once the bottle is free of food particles, rinse it thoroughly with hot water. Then rinse it with cold water. Finally, rinse it with lukewarm (or warm) water. If your tap water is not hot enough to clean the bottle thoroughly, heat some in a separate container before rinsing the bottle.
Some people also like to use a mixture of hot and cold water—say one-third hot and two-thirds cold—to cool down a very hot glass bottle after filling it up on a steaming summer day.
After lightly soaping and rinsing the bottle, use a lint-free cloth to dry it. If you don’t have a lint-free cloth, try using another towel or paper towel instead. You can also use any paper products like napkins, plates and cups to dry your glass bottles of wine.
After you've cleaned your bottles, let them sit for 24 hours in a well-ventilated area to dry completely. The bottle must be completely dry before using it again, adding liquid or sealing it up with a lid. If you plan on freezing the contents of your newly cleaned glass bottle, be sure that the vessel has been thoroughly dried out first—otherwise you may end up with water damage in the long run.
If you don't have anything to clean your glass with, it can be a good idea to use baking soda. Baking soda is really cheap and you can get it at most grocery stores. Put some on a rag or paper towel and rub the residue off of your bottles.
If that doesn't work, try using vinegar (it's also cheap and available at most grocery stores). Vinegar has a strong smell, so you might want to do this outside if that bothers you! Put some in a cup or bowl and soak the bottle in there for about 30 minutes. Then rinse it off with warm water until there isn’t any more visible residue on the bottle surface
Cleaning and drying glass bottles is easy, but you need to make sure they are completely dry before reusing them. The last thing you want is for your kid to break the bottle on accident because it was still wet from the dishwasher. If you try to wash one of these bottles with soap again when it hasn't dried, then it might break or crack in the wrong place and become dangerous for use.
If you don't let this type of container dry completely before using it again, then things like food can get stuck inside and start growing bacteria that could make someone sick if they eat from your container! That's why we recommend only cleaning out a glass jar after its contents have been used up.
It’s easy to clean glass bottles, but they need to be completely dry before use. This can take 24 hours or more, depending on how dirty the bottle is. If you want to reuse them quickly, you could rinse them off with water and let them sit overnight before using them again.
