When you learn how to sterilise glass bottles properly you can use them again. Once they are sterilised, you will not have to worry about getting the germs from them. This is why they are so important for use in producing and storing food and drinks. Soaking and straining bottles before use will prevent contamination of your products. Follow the basic tips when learning how to sterilise glass bottles.
You should always wash your hands with soap and water prior to handling the jars or bottles. The soap and water act as an anti-bacterial agent that will kill any bacteria or other microorganism that may be present on the jars or bottles. If the jars or bottles are washed with warm water, they will be very easy to sterilise glass bottles in the microwave. Make sure you dry them in the microwave before putting them into the oven to ensure the best results.
The method you use to sterilise your jars or bottles will depend on whether you are using salt, sugar or jam. To use the jam method you need to put the jam into one end of the jar and cover it with the lid to keep it in place. Put the jam into the other end of the jar and add salt to the other end. Heat the oven to 200 degrees C. Place the jars or bottles in the oven for about five minutes. Remove the jars and put them on a cooling rack.
When learning how to sterilise glass bottles with jam, you need to know how to do it correctly. First, you will need to ensure that your jars or bottles are lids and that they have no air pockets. You can do this by gently pulling on the lids and making sure there is no air in them. Next, you will want to place your jam in the bottom of each jar or bottle and to start at the bottom and work your way up. You will want to ensure that you remove every last bit of the jam before the glass comes out clean.
For those of you who have hot water bottles, you will need to submerge the bottles in hot water for at least ten minutes to remove all of the bleach. For those of you who have stainless steel bottles you will want to soak the bottles in the sink for at least ten minutes, but this time you will want to make sure that the sink is filled with hot soapy water. After you have soaked the bottles you will want to rinse them off thoroughly, then you will repeat this process for the utensils you are going to be washing.
For those of you who have bottle tops you will want to take all of your washed utensils and dip them into the bleach solution. For those of you that have bottle tops you will need to first rinse them off and then put them on top of your bottle tops. For those of you that have not yet used bleach solution, you will need to bring some bleach to a boil over a bowl of hot water, stirring until the solution has dissolved completely. Once you have done this you will then need to transfer the solution to your jars, making sure that you mix it very thoroughly. After you have done this you will then want to put your jars into a sealable plastic bag and then seal them tightly.
