Default Old wine bottles

I'm in the process of bottling 18 galls of cider. Last night I washed and sanitized 20 old bottles. It took awhile to do this. Am I being too cautious by sanitizing them? Is just a good cleaning enough? Thanks

You can't be too clean in this hobby/obsession/passion...

Of course you want to clean/sanitize whatever you're putting your beer/wine in.
