Several issues back (sorry, I lost my files), reference was made to the
similarity between dry dishwasher detergent and B-Brite, the difference
being that dishwasher detergent has additional chlorine.

At the moment I use heat to sanitize my bottles (actually, I bake them),
and have avoided using the dishwasher for this purpose because the water
does not reach the required temperature of 170 F. Given the above
information about the detergent, does this mean that using the dishwasher
is an effective way to sanitize bottles?

Also: am I being unreasonably touchy if I say that I am sick to death of
messages about maltmills? I am assuming this giveaway is responsible for
the current glut of submissions (which delayed delivery of HBD on several
occasions, thereby bringing me to the brink of suicide. . .)
