      Hi Malkavina,
      Thank you for your comment. You can re-use our breast milk bags between 7 to 10 times. We do recommend that they are washed in warm soapy water using a bottle brush. Rinse and then place upside down on a drying rack. The milk bags can be sterilised in an electric steam steriliser. We do not recommend sterilising the milk bags in the microwave. They can also be sterilised in boiling water but ensure to wrap the milk bags in tea towel so that they don’t stick to the edges of the saucepan.
      Kind regards,

      Hi Janet,
      Happy to say these milk bags can be sterilised in any UV steriliser! Please make sure to wash and rinse them first, then place them inside the steriliser with the cap off and the zipper open.
      Many thanks!
