Baby bottles - sterilising / white residue...
I am coming over here from 3rd tri.... I have just bought some baby bottles / teats etc (Philips Avent) and have sterilised them by boiling them in water for 5-10 mins (as it stated to do that in the booklet I got with it).
I dont know what has happened but I have taken them out the boiling water and the bottles have a white powdery residue on them.
Can I just rinse this off? Or is this a bad sign and I should get new bottles and start again?! (I hope not as I bought a starter packet with quite a few bottles etc).
hmmmm not sure try giving them a good scrub, if thery're brand new they shouldnt have anything on them already. could there have been something in the pan already. i'd give them a good scrub and do them again, seems a waste of money to throw them hun.
could be a residue from the water itself hun...as its evaporated its left salts and minerals behind that have stuck to the bottle..i rinse them with boiled water from the kettle and then sterilise them...im sure theyll be fine
yep i agree its probably the residue from the boiled water itself, especially if you live in a hard water area, i would just sterilise them if you've brought a sterilise, like electric or cold water and they should be fine x
