• Will the Milton Sterilising Fluid or Tablets kill Candida albicans, the fungi responsible for thrush?

    All the Milton products will kill Candida albicans (the agent responsible for thrush).

  • How long does Milton take to work?

    Items are ready for use after just 15 minutes of complete immersion in the Milton solution but can be left soaking for up to 24 hours. Items can be added and removed to and from the solution throughout the day as and when they are needed.

  • How long will a bottle stay sterile after being removed from the Milton solution?

    Bottles should be filled immediately after removal from the Milton solution. Teats should be covered.

  • Do you have to rinse bottles and teats before using them?

    After removing from the Milton solution, bottles and teats can be drained and used immediately - no need to rinse.

    The WHO (World Health Organisation) considers that the acceptable level of chlorine for drinking water is at 5 mg/l that 0.5% of the solution. In the Milton sterilising solution (made up either with the Sterilising Fluid or Tablets) there is 0.012% of chlorine which is far less than the level accepted by the WHO. This explains why it is not necessary to rinse. Also there is a risk of contaminating the baby accessories again by rinsing them.
