I wash my baby's bottles in very hot soapy water, rinse, and then steam in the microwave. They either have a soapy smell, which makes water taste a bit funny, or they have a milk smell. I can't win. I've tried washing in just super hot water, but they still smell funny. Help!

Wash in hot soapy water, rinse in hot water and then sterilise.
We do that but use an electric steam steriliser to sterilise our bottles.
Also if they smell look to replace the bottles- we don't have a smell issue but our bottles are glass.

yeah I always washed, then rinsed, then micorwave ... never had a smell.
if they still smell, I would look to get new bottles.

I was told to always rinse in cold water first before washing in hot water. Seems to work for me.

Maybe try a different brand of washing up liquid? I find that earth's choice brand I can always taste on dishes, I now get eco store (can only get at woolies I think) and don't have a problem.

We were told at the hospital when I had DD to rinse, brush, rinse again then sterilise. I've always stuck to this and haven't had any problems. I replace bottles when the plastic starts to look a bit yuk.
