I typically soak the bottles in a PBW solution overnight. I'll clean them and rinse them out. On bottling day, I'll make a StarSan solution in the bucket, submerge the bottles for about 30 sec while they soak, drain them, and then store them on the bottle tree.
I'm thinking that it's something along the lines of static charge, too. I have actually noticed the particles are generally on one side of the bottle, like you said. I have no idea what could be causing it, though. Hmm....
