A: Thankfully, you can cross this off your to-do list. Any water left inside the bottles after sterilisation is sterile and won’t collect germs so there’s no need to dry. In fact wiping the inside of a bottle after sterilisation could even add germs, so it’s best not to.
Q: Do I really need to sterilise my bottles?
A: Of course not, it’s entirely your choice. The main reason for using a microwave or electric steriliser is that they are guaranteed to reach the 100 deg C needed to kill off harmful bacteria that can build up in milk. You don’t get that guarantee with a dishwasher.
Q: How do I reassemble my bottle after sterilization?
A: Just reassemble as normal, but wash your hands thoroughly first, or use a pair of nipple tongs if you have some. The idea is to keep the bottle as clean and sterile as possible:)
