How To Safely Dry Your Baby's Bottles

After you’ve scrubbed, rinsed, and sterilized your baby's bottles , is your work complete? What is the best way to dry bottles?

Although you do not need to dry a baby bottle if you are using it right away, it is necessary to completely dry bottles before storing them for a later feeding to avoid bacterial growth. As a result, drying your baby bottles is an essential part of the cleaning process.

Some parents place their sparkling clean and moist bottles on a drying rack and let them air dry or use a soft towel to wipe away the remaining water. Other parents use a baby bottle dryer to ensure that bottles are thoroughly dried and ready for the next use.

Which method is the best way to dry baby bottles?

There are two primary approaches:

Drip or Air Dry. Many parents air or drip dry bottles on a bottle drying rack, or a regular dish drying rack. Though this approach is effective, it's also very time-consuming and your baby's bottles can pick up germs and bacteria from the air or from the moist drying rack. Also you'll need to clean and sterilize your drying rack regularly to avoid it contaminating your baby's bottles when they are being dried. One note: Do you not dry with a towel. This can transfer bacteria to your baby's bottles and even leave tiny fibers beyind.

Baby Bottle Dryer. This is the fastest and safest way to dry bottles. Parents who follow this approach use an electric bottle sterilizer dryer that has a built-in dryer. These appliances automatically dry bottles within 60 minutes right after sterilizing and keep them sterile for up to 24 hours inside. This approach saves you a lot of time and effort and ensures the bottles stay clean and sterile throughout the process.
