I don't think it really is . I always wash them before their first use , either in hot soapy water or in the dishwasher . I think as long as they are clean that's fine .


I didn't think sterilizing bottles was necessary. Before I used them for the first time I soaked them in hot soapy water. In between uses I would hand wash or run them through the dishwasher. Sterilizing was just not something I ever did.
