Drying the Inside of Narrow Necked Bottles

A quick and easy way to dry the inside of bottles or decanter that can't be dried with a brush or rag on the inside is to take about 3/4 cup of quinoa grain and swirl it around the inside of the bottle. It will absorb the moisture, and not leave any residue. Quinoa is a grain-like berry and is very absorbent to do this task.

I stand the bottles upside down to get out as much water as possible, then I use a blow dryer to finish drying the bottle. Just aim at the opening.

I warm the oven to 200 degrees, put the bottle in and turn the oven off. Works like a charm.

Really, you can't wait 5-10 min for it to air dry? Such a waste of energy and food stuffs. Sigh......
