That is my normal ritual. I have to bring out buckets of water from in the house to the shop, so I was just saving a trip with the old starsan.
I'll try the baking soda and see how that works on the bottles. I was given a bunch of XX bottles, so haven't tried them yet. As hard as it is getting the labels off, if they don't work I am going to be P.O.ed!
