    Is there any risk to the 1 tablespoon per gallon mixture?
    I just acquired a hard to find ACL bottle for a friend and it would be horrible if I ate the paint off!

    Is this a wipe or a soak for a time period?

    The bottle I have is not nearly as bad as the ones you successfully cleaned (very impressive) but it has some bad areas on the paint that I hope to clean up.

    Try it on a bottle that you don't care about first. Be very careful with bleach. It has a tendency to make bright colors look dull, on anything!
