    You don't need to rinse with Milton, but I wouldn't be actively getting them to drink it. I'd sterilise using them and then refill with plain water afterwards.

    p.s. welcome to PF :)

    We just used milton to sterilise the water tank of our motorhome - and rinsed it thoroughly after. But the water still has a faint bleach smell after several flushes through, so I'd recommend rinsing it several times.it might be better for something that isn't sealed of course.
