How to clean oil bottles quickly and easily

To clean the bottles, first remove the cap and the plastic grid. Then fill the bottle with a mixture of 1 part vinegar and 2 parts hot water . Vinegar has natural disinfectant and deodorizing properties, and is able to dissolve the most stubborn oily residues . Screw on the cap and gently shake the bottle to ensure that the mixture reaches all the internal walls.

Oil is a fundamental ingredient in the kitchen and to have it always available, we often buy it in glass cans or demijohns and then pour it into bottles when necessary. As we well know, glass is a recyclable material, excellent for preserving products and respecting their organoleptic qualities. Once the oil has been consumed, in order to reuse the bottles you must clean them thoroughly, a task which if not done correctly can prove quite difficult. Today we will see together how to clean oil bottles without going crazy.

Alternatively, if you wish to carry out a more thorough cleaning, pour hot water, dishwashing liquid or degreaser and grains of rice or coarse salt into the bottles . These last 2 ingredients have a rough surface that helps to remove oil residues and absorb excess.

Rinse by hand using hot water or proceed with washing in the dishwasher. At this point all you have to do is place them upside down and wait for them to dry completely before using them again.

Once you have placed the ingredients inside the bottles, screw on the cap, shake vigorously and leave to act overnight . The next day, empty the bottle, use a pipe cleaner to scrub and get into the most difficult corners, rinse well with hot water or wash it in the dishwasher .

With a few natural ingredients and a little patience it is possible to achieve excellent results, without having to resort to toxic or harmful substances.
