What makes plastic go cloudy in the dishwasher? Do you wonder sometimes if you should even be using those baby bottles, even when you know they’re clean? That cloudy film is actually made up of mineral deposits that stick to the plastic due to the dishwasher’s heat and quick drying process. And if you have hard water, this will only make the problem worse. Here is how to get your cloudy baby bottles clean again.
1. Wash Them Alone
Hopefully, your dishwasher has a “top rack only” cycle. Why? Because when you wash plastic baby bottles with other utensils and dishes, things like colored sauces and other foods will actually penetrate the plastic in the baby bottle and cloud it right up. While your bottles will be clean, they’ll come out with discoloration.
