I purchased new bottles that I plan to use for storing dilutions, however, I would like to clean the bottles prior to using them to ensure they are free of contaminants. Two ideas I had for cleaning the bottles are:
- 190 proof alcohol
- Boiling in water bath
Option 1 will result in me wasting the little alcohol I have for my dilutions, so option 2 seems like it might be best. Thoughts? How do all of you clean your bottles?
What about the polycone lined caps? Can they be safely boiled?
