how to clean and sterilize baby bottles

Cleaning baby bottles is such a pain in the bum.  It's been 6 months now and I swear this must be the most boring job in the world.  I do the cleaning twice a day (once midday and once at night before sleeping) so that milk bottles are ready for my babies' next feeding, and so that pumping parts are ready for the next pumping.

Here's a short video I've made on how I clean the baby bottles, how I sterilize bottles and bottle parts, and how I use the dishwasher to clean them - which is my most preferred method, because with twins there are so many bottles and so much less work to do when there's a dishwasher doing it for you.

● The bottles I used are Dr. Brown's BPA Natural Flow Bottle Newborn Feeding Set:
● I used The First Years Spin Stack Drying Rack: but this one Dr. Brown's Universal Drying Rack is good too.  I prefer using vertical space instead of just flat 1-tier racks. ● Many people like to use a sterilizer, for example one like Philips AVENT 3-in-1 Electric Steam Sterilizer: but I did not spend on one especially considering I had too many bottles and parts for twins, but this may be useful for a singleton.

All the bottles and bottle parts and pump parts drying on this rack in a designated "bottle cleaning station" (picture below)

Please watch the video for details, I hope you will find it useful!
