I heat up a pot of PBW to 140F and soak bottles for 30 mins. Rinse then sanitize and let drip dry.

I found bottles in the garage from a year ago. Got them from F-in-law and they were from Germany. Caked with crap in the bottom. I seriously contemplated throwing them away.

Instead I tired bleach. A little in each bottle plus warm tap water. Let them sit for 2 days, b/c I didn't get back to them. Lets face it, I left them in the garage for a year without attending to them, what was an extra day right? Anyway, completely clean when I dumped them out.

As was said before, rinse the bottles ASAP after using them, and then soak them overnight in OxyClean. I haven't had to use my bottle brush in a couple of years since I started that routine.

Cool.

Sounds like oxyclean for me. I'll let you know how it works out for me

To be honest, my sanitation for bottles gas always been to run them in the dishwasher on santize. That's what a friend of mine does. But it seems that's not optimal. I think I'll just have to add this to my cleaning regime.

I got some old Home brew bottles from a friend that had a hard black layer caked on the bottom. A long soak in Oxyclean Free solution and then a good shake with rinse water took it out. I keep a bucket filled with Oxyclean Free solution just for this now.

If you have any stubborn bottles try taking a bottle brush and cutting the little loop on the handle off. Slide a piece of tubing over the handle leaving enough for a drill to grip the end. Attach to drill and give it a whirl with a little oxyclean or pbw in the bottle. Knocks that sh*t right off.

Thanks, Fat Drac is awesome.
I meant Father-in-law. I was just shortening it for typing it in but now that I read it as effin law, kinda funny.
