Will it hurt it in the long run?

What kind of water? Were the bottles sanitized? No matter what, I say you'll be fine...

They are brand new (my first batch) but I had rinsed them out with water a few hours ago and wanted to bottle them tonight.

Just sanitize them before filling them and you're golden...

Cleaners are not sanitizers. You should use something like iodophor, star san, or even diluted bleach. Check this out...

You're better off rinsing and skipping the sanitizer if that's all you've got. You really should use a food-grade no-rinse sanitizer like StarSan or B-T-F Iodophor to sanitize. The stuff you have sounds like a surface disinfectant.

*edit*

Sorry. Slow typer.

Many of us just use the sanitize cycle on a dish washer for bottles.

Read the package I think the cleaner you have is a chlorine sanitizer as well. Just rinse very well before filling them. I got the same pink stuff with my starter kit. Its a pain in the butt but it will work until you can get a no rinse sanitizer.

If this looks messed up sorry I'm typing on the wifes blackberry from a wedding
