    Mine get rinsed
    then soaked in soapy water
    then scrub them with the soapy water
    rinse them
    and then steralise and dry

    minus the soaking it takes about 15 minutes

    I wash mine in soapy water with a bottle brush, rinse and sterilize. Occasionally if they have built up mineral deposits I wash them as before, boil them in water with a teaspoon of vinegar in it, than wash again and sterilize

    Put them all in the sink bowl in hot soapy water. Scrub them with the bottle and teat brushes, rinse, and put them into the steriliser.

    i do exactly the same except before i put the teats in the soapy water i scrub them with salt inside and out...a really old midwife advised me to do this with my first lo 11 years ago she said it gets rid of every scrap of bacteria....not to sure of its effectiveness but ive done it with all 4 kids now
