Default Sanitizing 12oz bottles in dishwasher???

Beginner Question
I used plastic bottles on my first brew. I have read most people use glass, so I want to sanitize glass bottles in the dishwasher before bottling my second brew. How do most people sanitize glass bottles in the dishwasher? Do you use common dish soap like Cascade? Or do you use the no rinse sanitizer in the dishwasher compartment? Thank you in advance for your help!!!

I clean my bottles in the sink and rinse them good then use the dishwasher just to sterilize. I run the dishwasher with nothing else, just water, and I put it on the hot cycle so nothing comes out alive.

Default Dishwasher

Thats how I have done my bottles for years without ever having a problem. I rinse them out each time I open one and hit it with a brush if needed. Then whenever I bottle I run them in the dishwasher an hour or two before hand and let the heat cycle do its thing.

Goodluck, Coldknife

There's a couple of long threads on this subject. Best to read them and not revisit.

I originally soaked my bottles in a tub of water with sanitizer in it. I got tired of that, though, and the last few batches I bottled I used the dishwasher.

I run the dishwasher thru one cycle empty with no soap. Then I put the bottles in, set it for hi-temp wash and sanitize.

When drink a bottle and want to re-use it later I put it in the dishwasher and wash it with my other dishes. I sanitize the re-used bottles later at bottling time.

Thank you all for all the help. I will sanitze in the dishwasher. Does any one have problems with bottles moving (rolling around and hitting each other) around in the dishwasher and breaking the bottle?

You're better off using the sanitized water from your carboys than running through the dishwasher.
