I was going to try using PBW to better clean my daughters sippy cups because they have a tendency to have small amounts of mold growth around the little gasket seal that keeps them from drinking too much. This brand, I think it's gerber, the valve won't come out so you're stuck trying to clean it with a bottle brush, but I thought a little soak in some PBW might help since it's works well on organic material. Any experience with this or other brewing cleaner for bottles?

Should work.

I used to sanitize the nipples with StarSan before we got a steam sanitizing dishwasher.

Wife always complained that it burned her boobs.

well i've used it on beer bottles .... never a baby bottle. how do you normally clean your daughter's cup? it sounds like you need to be more rigorous with that than you are now. as far as using PBW it can't be more dangerous than any other dishwasher soap.

try the pbw and pipe cleaners, imo they work better for little crevices than any bottle brush made.

pbw is percarbonates and TSP. Both are commonly used in dish detergents. TSP is a common food additive... yes the stuff you prepare walls with for paint is used in food. percarbonates break down into hydrogen peroxide.

As long as you rinse well you should be o-k.

When I saw the posting, I read "PBR for toddler sippy cups? ". I thought, that's a good idea.

I used oxiclean on a valve for my boy's sippy cup last week.

any good detergent will work given enough time and temp. My daughter is a little say over the top with sanitization she uses those Gerber tippy cups too. Dishwasher then she takes then all and sticks them in a big glass bowl then nukes them till the water is just about boiling. Yup those things are sanitized



Then he goes out and puts rocks, sticks, dirt and other kids toys in his mouth
