Milton Sterilising Fluid helps to kills 99.9% of harmful bacteria, fungi and viruses found on baby bottles, teats, soothers, breast pump parts and other baby items and accessories and can also be used as a surface cleaner.


Milton Sterilising Fluid can be used to disinfect all breastfeeding equipment including baby bottles, teats, soothers, breast pumps parts and other feeding accessories such as plastic cutlery and weaning bowls. The fluid kills 99.9% of harmful bacteria, fungi and viruses and once mixed with water the steriliser is effective for 24 hours.

Once the equipment has been submerged in the solution there is no need to rinse as the formula is harmless and leaves behind no unpleasant taste or odour.

What is Milton?

Milton is a stable solution of sodium hypochlorite which completely destroys all viable micro-organisms including spores. It is non-toxic and non-tainting and when in contact with protein, breaks down to form:

Water sodium chloride (salt)

Using the simple 3-step Milton Method, the sterilising system is clinically proven to kill all micro-organisms within 30 minutes and Candida Albicans in 1 minute. Each solution lasts 24 hours and with no need to rinse is an easy and convenient way to keep feeding utensils and teethers sterile all day.

It is important to sterilise everything that goes into baby’s mouth, including bottles, soothers, teethers and toys. It is particularly important to sterilise feeding utensils, such as bowls and spoons as babies are very vulnerable to infection during weaning. Always wash hands thoroughly, particularly after the toilet, nappy changes or handling food.

Why Milton?

Milton pioneered the sterilisation of baby bottles and teats, enjoying a long and rich history which attests to its efficacy, safety and convenience. Based on more than 50 years of extensive medical research, Milton has become a well-established, highly respected name – synonymous with infant care.

The Milton Method is widely accepted by hospitals as the superior sterilisation method to boiling and is supported by extensive clinical research and data to evidence that Milton is not just safe, easy and convenient, but also highly effective and reliable. Medicated shampoo containing: alcoholic extract of coal tar 5% w/w, also contains a conditioner. Medicated shampoo containing: alcoholic extract of coal tar 5% w/w, also contains a conditioner.

Why sterilise?

In the first year of life, a baby’s immune system is unable to fight off many of the disease causing micro-organisms that cause food poisoning in adults. However, in babies these micro-organisms can result in gastroenteritis, a potentially more serious condition which can quickly lead to dehydration and hospitalisation.

Common causes of gastroenteritis in babies are:

  • Rotavirus – air borne virus passed on from person to person. Accounts for the majority of hospital admissions with diarrhoea for the under 5’s
  • Campylobacter – the most common type of food poisoning, often contracted from cats and dogs
  • Salmonella – often due to undercooked foods
  • E Coli 0157 – from raw meat and often passed on from not washing hands after the toilet
  • Listeria – from poor hand washing

Spores are bacteria in a dormant (non-active) state. They have a very tough ‘coating’ around them and are very difficult to destroy. If present in food that is re-heated, for example, these spores will become active again and multiply rapidly. Even breast fed babies are at risk of infection. The only effective way to protect your baby is sterilise feeding utensils, soothers and teethers.

Wash bottles, teats, breastfeeding equipment in warm, soapy water, then rinse in cold water.

Prepare the solution, fill your unit with 5L of cold tap water and add 1 cap of Milton Fluid, (30ml).

Add the items and ensure they are submerged under the water. In just 15 mins everything is ready to use. There is no need to rinse with water, and other items can stay in the solution until needed. Renew the solution every 24 hours.

You can also use this method to disinfect fruit and vegetables but rinse before eating.

For surface cleaning, use 3 caps for 5L of water.

Keep away from children. If in contact with the eye rinse well with clean water and contact a specialist. If swallowed contact a doctor and show the packaging. Do not use in combination with other products as toxic gases (such as chlorine) may be released. Do not use on metal. take care not to splash the solution as it may discolour fabrics. Do not throw in the environment.
