For new parents learning how to wash baby bottles, there really is no science. There are a few tips to help make the job a bit easier, but it really is the same as washing any other dishes. The only time where special circumstances need to be taken is when you are choosing to use a dishwasher to wash the bottles.
There are a few little things that can help the process go a bit faster no matter which route you take, and making sure to follow the directions is the first thing.
Making sure that the water is hot and you are using the proper soap is the second thing. Having the proper bottle brush or two will be the most useful tool that you should have on hand. Once all of these small steps are in place, you are ready to begin washing.
I recommend you use different bottle brushes when learning how to wash baby bottles. This is to cover the differences between bottle sizes and to clean all of the nooks and crannies out. Every bottle needs to be cleaned inside and out, so make sure that no matter what tool you use, it gets every part of the bottle completely clean.
Taking the time to wash everything out very carefully is the most important step in this process. No one wants to miss anything that could make a baby sick, so take your time. If you are going to use a dishwasher, please use it very carefully. It only takes a minute or two to wash out the bottles, so it may be safer overall to just wash them all by hand. It will definitely increase the life expectancy of the bottles and components.
