Default salt water in bottles?????

We had some tidal flooding this past week and a case of clean bottles ended up in the water in our garage. Will they still be ok to use if they are sanitized before bottling?

wash them and then sanitize them again. All will be well.

You must be in Virginia, saw it on the news, it looked brutal down there. I dont see salt water being a problem as long as the bottles are cleaned and sanitized again.

I'd make sure to clean them (oxyclean perhaps) and then sanitize.

Glass can handle thousands of years in sea water without any damage. Just make certain you get all the crabs and jelly fish out.

Damn, word gets around fast. It was pretty ****ty out here for a few days (now cleanup sucks too)

But back on topic

Yes, just clean and use them as you would normally.
