    Electric steriliser
    cold water sterilising
    boil
    microwave
    dishwasher

    Just read a lil bit about dishwasher method! At first I thought you'd need to sterilise after but now its looking like you don't that does the job!

    In which case I wasted £40 LOL

    I hope my dishwasher is clean - I eat off my plates after that. Its not uncommon (search google) 80c water and steamed 'after' wash cycle!

    I used the Avent microwave one, it is sooooo easy and quick. I stopped using it around 13 months and i now just wash in the dishwasher.

    Don't know if this will bother you, but when you put the Avent bottles in the DISHWASHER** (Corrected myself) the food stains the lids mainly and also the while plastic screw bit. It's not a problem, but doesn't look too hygienic. Also, be careful no one puts them on the bottom rack, as this causes the bottles to crack.. we had to buy a whole new set of bottles when someone did this.

    I would always sterilise after running them in the dishwasher, just to be on the safe side.

    We use the Avent Steam Steriliser, it's great.. does the job.:happydance:

    Found this link on someone elses link lol: http://www.dh.gov.uk/en/Policyandgu...etopics/Maternalandinfantnutrition/DH_4123674

    Pretty good read.

    Cold water steriliser with milton fluid. It can also be used as a microwave steriliser but our micro is on top of our fridge freezer, so I don't fancy getting the steriliser out and a face full of boiling water (ouch!)

    Lids & teats I think I'd boil! I was also wondering about the dishwasher rinse then sterilising :D However as someone pointed out the dishwasher is hotter than a steriliser and I hope it does what it says it should as far as cleaning & steaming goes for my own benefit lol BUT over all I bought a digi tippee steriliser so I'm using it lol but was curious after I read about it.

    I was going to say the same thing. Our Tommee Tippee bottles and bits went a weird orange colour after going in the dishwasher. I've been handwashing then steam sterilising ever since.
