I would run them thru the dishwasher and wash the lids in hot soapy water in the sink, rinse well.

Thanks, My lids have a backing on them that will stick to the bottle/jar. Would I still want to wash the lids by hand or dishwasher or don't worry about washing?

Are your jars dirty when you get them? And your lids? Don't your lids come in a bag inside a box? Unless I've been doing it wrong for 20 years, the jars and lids that I use I consider clean and not in need of washing. That's one reason that the jars come in boxes w/ the bottom of the jar facing the top of the box, so nothing falls into them.

I think you are wasting time and energy and being over cautious. That or I have been doing it wrong and so have all of the other honey packers I know.

Tour a honey packer sometime...you'll go home and wonder why you even worry about 90% of the things you do. Especially when you see them take barrels of chinese honey straight from the parking lot rusty and coverd in mud and put them in an oven.
