Have you tried just boiling them? Maybe there's still a bit of gunk hiding in the plastic and they just need to be sterilized.

Re: Washing bottles

We use Dr Bronner's soap and it completely took care of it.

Re: Washing bottles

I had that problem with my first child. This time I've switched to Babyganics brand (available at babiesrus or amazon). I usually wash in the dishwasher with their dishwasher detergent and a little bowl of vinegar. The detergent is expensive, but you only use a small amount and it lasts forever. The few times I've soaked in hot water with their bottle soap has also worked great.

Re: Washing bottles

If they're really smelly, I'd just soak them in the sink and add a smidgen of bleach or (oxiclean if you don't feel comfortable using bleach). Another thing you may want to try is steaming them after you've washed them. That way you know all the germs are killed. And then they shouldn't smell rancid.

Re: Washing bottles

I just found BABY palmolive and im obsessed! It has a really nice fruity smell and its designed to help get rid of milk residue. You can get it at Walmart (only place ive seen it so far). I wash mine with a scratch free brush and baby palmolive, then sterilize them in a dr browns sterilizing container.

Re: Washing bottles

I only used glass bottles, but I boiled them after washing and rinsing.

This was my suggestion. Mine are so much easier to clean if I rinse them out immediately after a feeding. When I'm ready to clean, I let them sit in scalding hot soapy water until the water cools down enough for me to wash them. Really cuts down on the scrubbing.

Re: Washing bottles

I use glass bottles (just the cheap Evenflo ones) and never had a problem, they come clean really easily either hand washing or in the dishwasher.
