    Hello and welcome, I like the ACL bottles also but I recycle more than I keep, here in the south the humidity and moistly just eat the paint away. . Dig-on.

    For correctness' sake, I must alert you that ACLs are not painted but baked on. They fuse the pigments to the glass itself. It was originally called pyroglazing. Each colour was baked on separately. Humidity won't hurt them. Water won't hurt them-- I found a perfect ACL Squirt from 1947 in a lake right on the surface of the bottom. What hurts them is chemicals in the ground/water.


    Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

    Joshua chapter 1, verse 9.
