recycling juce bottles
ive got some 40 plastic juice bottles , need a good method to get trace flavor out .
sterilising is the easy part , ive put up enough caning to have a handle on that part .
new bottles are plenty cheap enough , but waste not want not

RE: recycling juce bottles
Indeed.

Bleach is good for shifting traces of old flavours. Obviously then you need to shift the bleach but it washes out nicely. Sodium hydrogen carbonate (bicarbonate of soda) can help with some flavours.

Another alternative is denture tablets. They'll work just fine.

RE: recycling juce bottles
I was going to ask what people do with new bottles, I have lots of those tablets. If I rinse them out then leave them soak in water using Tesco sterilizing tablets (For babies bottles) then turn them upside own on tissue? Would any of that solution hurt if any was left behind?

I have seen people take them out of the sterilizing water mix, then wash them under the tap :0

Milton then rinse, or wash out then boil (Check one bottle first to make sure the plastic can take boiling.)

I like boiling.

RE: recycling juce bottles
Depends on whether it'll heat the plastic or not. If it will, you are going to be scraping little blobs of former bottle out of the microwave. If it won't there's not a lot of point really. The hard clear bottles might burn, not sure about the squidgy ones.

I know that the hard clear ones do tend to melt when boiled.
