Getting bottle nipples squeaky clean — The Bump

Getting bottle nipples squeaky clean

I put the nipples in the Dr Brown's dishwasher basket and after a couple days, they are always cloudy-looking, not the clear-looking nipples like when they were purchased.  Every 2 weeks, I boil the nipples and any binkies to get them clean, but the film never seems to come off the nipples.  I know they're clean, but would like them to look better.  Any tips or is this normal?
Thanks!

  • Do you ever hand wash them? I find boiling them leaves a film on them so I wash it off. Not that I've boiled them in a looong time.

  • Hand washing is the only thing that works for me.  I just put a bunch of them in a sink full of water and a drop of dish soap on my fingers and rub inside and out.
  • It worked! thanks!

  • I have the same issue. I sanitize all the bottle parts in microwave sanitizing bags every couple weeks. To me its a cosmetic issue, not really a germ issue so Im not really on top of it! The sanitizing takes the cloudiness away though, short term, until y

  • I soak mine in super hot water with the fancy "baby" dish soap that claims to get rid of milk residue. After letting them soak, I hand wash. Seems to work great so far.
