Is this bottle now toxic??

I feel strange filling beer into a bottle that previously had Oxy Clean in it.

Do you think C Brite will Kill the OxyClean?

Use a bottle brush or throw the bottle in recycling (we're only talking one bottle). Its not toxic but it will contribute off flavors...

It's supposed to. Kills the germies in there. Rinse it well, really well. Then you're on your way.

I've never had any off flavors and I always stick my bottles in some diluted Oxyclean solution. They're fine if you rinse like crazy.

worst case...use white vinegar to rinse the bottles.
My hard well water makes a huge mess with oxyclean. You almost need to rub it to get the mess off of the bottles.

and Dang it Soulive. STOP CHANGING YOUR AVATAR...That's 3 TODAY!

I get oxyclean in my bottles all the time when I'm delableing. Hasn't affected any brews yet. Just don't bottle without first rinsing the bottles out pretty well and you should be good to go. I use oxyclean to clean everything except metal things. If having itget inside something the beer touches was bad then I'd be up **** Creek.

Oxyclean???? You mean the fizzy powder that MOST OF US use to clean the inside of our bottles, buckets and Carboys? You're panicking about getting the best CLEANER around in your bottles?????

Is this a Parody thread?

You WANT to get oxyclean in your bottles, it will clean out any gunk you may have in there, some people dumpster dive bottles and get all sorts of gunk in there and submerge them in buckets full of oxyclean...

Then you RINSE the oxyclean out with water...Just like you're washing dishes...

Good, that's what I was hoping to hear!


Yes, that's the ticket.... this IS a parody thread! GOTCHA!

But, really, thanks for calming me down.

OxyClean is your friend. Unless, of course, you spoon it into your mouth. Then, not so much.

Yes you should use oxyclean to clean with....I'd say about 98-99% of the people on here use it to clean with.

if you guys would have used the search feature you would have had your answer...



Repeat after me "OXYCLEAN RULES!!!!!"
