  • not sure but have you seen the clorox commerical for the bottle santizing?! It totally works for bottles and toys i suggest trying that. Visit there website to see the exact amounts of bleach and water. Its super easy though and quick!

  • Bleach leaves a residue, I would never use that on baby bottles.

    The truth is you don't really have to sanitize baby bottles- just wash them.
    If you do, approximately two minutes in boiling water.

  • What did it say to do on the package?

  • the packages i've bought say 3 minutes for all parts of the bottle just before the first time use. After that they can just be washed in hot soapy water.
