🧽 HOW DO YOU CLEAN YOURS? 🧼
Purchasing Your Bottles
You can purchase reusable glass bottles from the vending machine in The Old Dairy for £2 a bottle (lid included). Please note that this price does not include the milk. When refilling your bottle, our milk remains the same price as usual, at £1.50 a litre.
Once you have purchased your reusable glass bottle, you, the customer, will own the bottle and will be responsible for ensuring it is clean and suitable for refilling next time you visit.
Keeping Your Bottles Clean
In terms of bacterial contamination, milk is a high-risk product. Therefore, it is essential that your bottles are clean and ready to use.
We recommend you follow these steps to sterilise your bottles
1. Rinse the bottle out with cold water 2. Wash the bottle and lid in hot soapy water, and rinse 3. Fill with cold water, add 1/4 of a Milton tablet per bottle and leave for 15 minutes OR wash in the dishwasher. 4. Empty the Milton solution or remove from the dishwasher but don’t dry, place the bottles in the oven at 140 degrees for 20-30 minutes. This ensures that the bottle is completely dry and does not harbour harmful bacteria.
Please note that Milton is bleach based so will ruin your clothes if you spill it!
