Step 3: Bottle Preparation

Picture of Bottle Preparation
Collecting all of the bottles was the first major hurdle in this step.  I worked with the campus recycling program at the University of Nebraska to get them.  Volunteers then cut the labels off of each bottle, then we sanitized them by first dumping out all contents, and finally rinsing with a mixture of water and bleach.  We rinsed each bottle before rinsing again in plain water.
