Default Oxyclean and EZ cap rubber rings?

Hey folks, any experience with soaking these "Grolsch" style bottles in oxyclean? Any damage to the rings? Should I remove prior to soak?
Thanks

No issues here, I soak mine in oxyclean overnight with the bottles.

It depends on how much mater you are mixing with and how dirty everything is. The more water + dirtier bottles= more oxyclean! I generally use about 1/4 scoop in 5 gallons of water for your typical soak. Although I don't really pay too much attention to exactly how much I'm putting in. Its non-caustic so you shouldn't have a problem. Just be sure to rinse well!

Yeah, not looking forward to the rinse, but these are pretty clean bottles--not that it matters once you get the oxyclean on them, haha. Rinse is the same. Pain but necessary. Thanks; I'll go with that. Just to give them a good clean as I've had some sanitization issues lately it appears--trying to eliminate problems.

Whenever I used the Oxyclean soak, I threw the bottles in the dishwasher after for the rinse, and then dipped in Starsan just before bottleing. Have not found a problem with that yet. Be careful when you are grabbing the bottles out of the Oxyclean, they are VERY slippery and I have dropped a handful of them on the floor before I figures this out.

UPDATE----yeah, look at the instructions before using on EZ-Cap type bottles...you know, with METAL latches? "do not use on metal"---it started eating away at my nice bright, shiny latches and now they're all half-stripped. My own fault.
