Sterilising question

Not sure how this works,
Steriliser says that bottles stay sterIle for 24 hours if the lid remains closed.
So if baby has 5/6 bottles a day, do you take one out and re- sterilise? What’s the best thing or what do you do?

Sterilise the next bottle while you're making a feed up, as you're in the kitchen anyway.

I believe if the cap is firmly on the bottle stays sterile, however I ended up getting a cold water steriliser as I didn't trust it and found it a nightmare resterilising etc. Cold water so much easier, wash and throw in!

I sterilise and then make up the bottles fully with the lid on and they remain sterile inside until you use them.

I sterilise bottles and then leave them on the side until I need them, only have 6 bottles and baby feeds every 3 hours so they all get used but aslong as the bottle and teat is covered it's sterile.
