How to clean 'bits' from insde a urine bottle?

I have started using a plastic male urine bottle at night for my frequent peeing (about every 2-3 hours) and have just been rinsing it out with cold water in the mornings. However I note that there are increasing numbers of 'bits' stuck to the inside of the bottle which are not flushed out by the cold water. How do others clean these items?

I would try using Vinegar, it should clean it and also its a natural disenfectant.
You could just put some vinegar in it in the morning and let it sit until you use it at night.
Just my opinion. Good luck.
Take care, and God bless.

Re: How to clean 'bits' from insde a urine bottle?

I've been using the urine bottles for years. I wash them out in the morning with hot water and dish detergent. Just squirt some in the bottle and slosh hot water around. Water alone is not enough. They're very cheap. For a long time, I used the ones I brought home from the hospital after a stay. I'd throw them away when they get stained. Use soap and hot water.

Re: How to clean 'bits' from insde a urine bottle?

Thank you both for the advice. Sorry about the delay in replying.

I have been using a plastic jug for the job as it is easier to get inside and clean. The bottle has been sitting with water and disinfectant in it since I posted my query here, but the 'bits', or bacterial growths I think they are, are still evident on the bottle walls.

I will have a go with your methods.

Thanks again,
