Hi all,

I have a standard green enameled British canteen I actually want to use for re-enactment. It seems pretty clean on the inside (no crud) and I always stored it open, but what would be the best way to desinfect it without damaging the enamel? Soap, chlorine, household soda or ..... ?

I used Milton sterilising tablets for baby bottles. It hasn't harmed me so far.

Ditto. Sterilising tablets periodically, with a boiling water rinse most times before I intend to use it.

Waterbottle. Not canteen.

The best product I have found is hot flask cleaner. Or just Bicabronate of soda and hot water.

I think I actually have soda in house already. The baking- or cleaning sort? I use the latter for eletrolysis rust removal too.
