Which dishwashing soap do you use to hand wash baby bottles?

I am trying to figure out which dish soap is the best to use :)

    I just use regular dish soap. I do use a baby facecloth to wash them and keep that separate from my regular dish cloth. And I make sure to rinse them well with hot water and sit them to air dry on a baby bottle specific towel. 

    I have only boiled my bottles and accessories once when I first bought them. I hope that's not bad!?!?!

    i just use regular dishsoap. i was them with a bottle brush, and then put them on a bottle drying rack. its all kept on the other side of the sink so it doesn't get mixed with regular dishes or anything. i also sanitize them in the dishwasher once a week.

    This exactly. I try to sterilize them in the microwave once a week but i don't freak out if it doesn't happen.

    I also use regular dish soap. I wash bottles separate in hot water and they have their own drying rack, and I use a bottle brush.

    We use either Seventh Generation or Method - nothing special for baby.  As long as you rinse them well and air dry, I think anything is fine.  We just prefer the eco-friendly ones - fewer crazy chemicals.

    Palmolive makes a "baby" dish soap but I don't think it really makes a big difference as it all rinses off.

    I'm with others - just regular old dish soap.  Hot water is a must, and full drying on their own towel/rack.  Since DD started daycare, I will boil her nipples and pacifiers once a week.

    This one, I was using baby palmolive I think, but it was leaving soap residue. It was freaking me out that no matter how much I rinsed there was always soap. I also sterlize my bottles every day I use plastic avent bottles im just so freaked about germs when it comes to plastic.

    I use Dapple or Sun and Earth. Most "regular" detergents are petroleum based and do leave a residue.

    Agreed. Dapple is plant based and rinses beautifully!
