Have you tried washing them to get the bleach cleaner residue off them instead of just rinsing?

yes dish soap, hand washing with dish soap and a bottle brush, not the dishwasher, it wont leave a film.

One other thing you could do is rinse the bottle with some vinegar, but do his in a open area since, it releases chlorine gas, this should remove all the bleach components, give the bottles a good rinse and it should be good to use .

If you have a sulfiter/vinerator for bottling you could fill that with soapy water and blast your bottles a bunch.

assuming that these are glass bottles, just leave them out for a few days or a week. chlorine rapidly evaporates and the smell will dissappear over not too much time.
