I'm worried about germies that might lurk and grow in my children's drink bottles. They only ever have water in them but they sit around all day and although I try and empty them at night it doesn't always happen. I obviously can't clean the straw but I've got metal ones that I can get a brush inside but I still can't properly clean around all the small parts of the top or the straw. We have on occasions found a little scum inside drink bottles which immediately then got thrown out because we simply could not clean it properly.
Can you get replacement straws anywhere?
How do you ensure the hygiene of your children's drink bottles?

I put a pipe cleaner with detergent on it down into the straw and then rinse it well.

I chuck mine in the dishwasher and rinse them well before refilling. When I refill them I fill them with boiling water, and let it cool to room temp before giving it to DD. It steam cleans them and makes sure they are safe for use.
I have heard that dry rice (pour in and shake) will get rid of any bottle gunk, but I haven't tried it myself yet
