    Generally isn't "stuff", it's damage to the glass. So no you can't soak it off, you have to put a bottle through a tumbler to get the glass clear again. Or I think people use some sort of oil sometimes to hide it, I'm not sure which. Unless you have actual minterals encrusted on the bottle in which case it shouldn't be too hard to scrape off.

    It's on inside. Suppose that is etched?

    Oh actually I think that is some sort of residue on the glass. That's not what I thought you were talking about. I'm not sure what to clean that off with but I suspect it will come off.

    Try oxalic acid (in the paint department), muriatic acid, LimeAway, or almost any other acid cleaner (not Whink, which will etch glass).

    Hey Warf,
    I'm not sure this will help. It is a post I made a long time ago. Helped a fair number of members.

    Hi,
    New here, but to add to cleaning hints. Two things....white vinehar soak. About an hour?? Then, second, small brushes for dryer cleaning. They have wire bases and longer necks, and short stiff bristles.
