    Anyone else get this with their dishwasher?

    All my teats and bottle tops have now gone slightly orange. I've just spent the last hour boiling them and still no change.

    Any tips to get them clean again? Or will i just have to live with it>

    Did you wash dishes with a tomato based sauce by any chance?! I've found anything of Aisling's that's plastic goes an orangey shade if it goes in with the spag bol dishes etc. I haven't found a way of getting rid of it I'm afraid :(

    I did have this with the teats, it has slightly improved but only with time and lots of steralising. My bottles are blue and green :lol:

    i think it happens with heat...i've heard people say it happened after using microwaves, dishwashers, steam sterilisers etc

    although having said that mine went like it when i used a cold water steraliser and milton tabs :shrug: but then again i have put them in the microwave b4 and i do put hot water in them.

    i so far haven't found a way to get them back to clear.
