Milk film on glass bottles
As always Angela - you're my hero. It's not a build up just used a couple of times before realised the film was there and been struggling to get rid of it for ages. Have some baby bottle sanitising tablets but they all say for plastic so haven't used them but hey what the heck. Will give the dishwashing powder a go and if not then the tablets. Would be nice if it works as they are good bottles to use but not if this is going to happen. Thanks for the help.

Put a spoonful in the bottle, fill the bottle about 1/3 of the way with water as hot as you can get it out your tap (wear dishwashing gloves so you don't burn your hands on the hot glass), close the cap, and shake (upside down, over the sink). It creates a partial vacuum in the bottle and can create enough pressure to force the milk scum off the glass. When you open the bottle, do it upside down, over the sink, and be prepared for the water to shoot out of the bottle. This may take several times, but usually works. If it's really built up, you may have to get some dairy acid wash. I think you can still get those baby bottle sanitising tablets and they work ok also.

You should also always rinse the milk bottle with cold water first before you introduce hot water and detergent.

There are no bad questions only those that are not asked.

As soon as the bottle is emptied - rinse with cold water. When I go and wash it - I use hot soapy water. I got my bottlebrush at Briscoes - actually designed properly so the base of the brush is bent over so the brush part is on the bottom as well as the sides.
If all else fails, baking soda and vinegar. As soon as the vinegar is added - swish the liquid around so that the initial reaction isn't wasted.
If there is a really stubborn stain - move up to washing soda and vinegar

this was to remove green growth in bottom of narrow neck glass bottle..
works a treat
Ours fit into the lower shelf of the dw ok, but I have had to soak with bleach from time to time, esp. if the bottle leans over more during a wash cycle. I have a soak away system for our waste water, but I assume you could recycle the bleach mix by pouring over weeds outdoors?
