Default Oxiclean sanitation

I recently used a cooler full of oxiclean to submerge bottles in for label removal. I am wondering now how to clean them for bottling day. I rinsed them twice with tap water but do I need to do more besides starsan?

Rinse with warm water and have them sit in starsan until bottle day. Pull out to let drip dry if you like them to be fully dry by bottling time.

You are good-to-go provided you rinsed well and have no oxyclean/hard water deposits (glass should feel smooth).

Best of luck - great timing to drink at New Years.

Dishwasher with sanitize option is a option if you have.

I think just the drying cycle is hot enough to sanitize.
I still rinse with starsan before use no matter what.
If nothing else, it makes me feel better.

Probably fine, but once dry they are susceptible to gathering new micro creepy crawlies. Also Starsan has a one min contact time so more than that really isn't necessary (couldn't hurt though I guess).
