Don't get them wet while they're hot...
Yeah that's "sterilizing" not "sanitizing" but should work just the same.

I do the bucket of water with sanitizer thingy, never had a problem. Consider a bottle tree, bacteria doesn't go up... neither does dust when your bottles sit between batches.

I always use the oven for sterilizing bottles. To me it seems like the easiest way when you have to do 50 12 oz bottles.

I use a sanitizer solution and drip dry on the dish washer rack. I can fit an entire batch in my dishwasher.
I am considering using the sanitize setting on my dishwasher but that setting is a power hog and it is questionable whether enough water enters the bottle to make sanitizing effective.

While the next 8 are in, I quickly give a rinse down just to make sure all the idophor is out
FYI, Iodopher is a no rinse sanitizer as well.

It's not the water entering the bottles, but the heat & humidty of the environment.

I use the power, it's much easier than the other methods. Clean bottles into the dishwasher, push the buttons, and hit start. Come back when done and bottle directly from the dishwasher.

8 or 9 batches so far with no problems with contaminated bottles.

I'm probably the only one who uses bleach. But it does take a long time to first clean the bottles with Oxyclean, rinse, soak in bleach, rinse. I've done 12 batches now, and never had a problem.

I'm going to look into the sanitize feature of a dishwasher. Interesting.
