get a double blast bottle washer.midwest has them, but I got mine local for cheaper. you can blast 2 bottles at once with hot water and then put them on bottle tree to dry. since you said you are cheap (efficient) do like I did. I took a sheet of wood and drilled 1" holes in it. then on the outer edges, I put 2x4's to raise it off the ground. I put my bottles in here to drip-dry or nearly dry after I wash them. I like to overdo my washing of bottles.
night before: soak in water with bleach (cheap). in the morning I use the brush and dump out the water. then I use the blaster to rinse and put them in the rack to drip. before I bottle, I fill my bottling bucket with Idophor (sanitiser) then I dip my bottles into the bucket and fill them with it. then let them sit a few minutes and dump them out and place in rack. do not rinse. do not rinse. let drip and use when ready.
note: the bottle blaster comes with an extra blasting tip that is larger to use when cleaning a carboy. when drying carboy, place upside down on top of large size coffee can with holes cut in the side for ventilation.
