I recently got a new dishwasher and it doesn't have just a heat dry, it's rinse then heat dry...My old one had the dial where I could turn it to just heat dry. So my question is can I still load up the dishwasher to sanitize my bottles using the rinse then heat dry cycle?

Thanks!

AH never mind I also realized my dishwasher has a compartment for jet dry that automatically dispenses it during the rinse cycle, def don't want that on/in mu bottles...guess I will soak them in my sick in StarSan.

I did my bottles in there for a couple of years. Rinse Aid had no effect on anything. I suggest you try it before you make a decision.

Two things to consider: many people repeat what they've heard without actually testing it themselves. So, if they don't quote from actual experience, weight those appropriately.

And B: very little water from the dishwasher will get into the bottle.
