I have had 5 bottles cleaned (tumbled) by a “professional”. Took several months and the best and most delicate broke in the process. I have a few dug inks I’d like to have cleaned but not sure they are appropriate for this process. Anyone have success with inks?

Man...that sucks. I'm sure someone has had some success tumbling inks, but I imagine there are some special tricks, especially for umbrellas.

If it is content stain, try a solvent like alcohol or lacquer thinner and let it stand over night. after you have used soap and water. I used to have fairly good results with a strong mix of TSP and let it stand for 5 or 6 days, but I don't know if you can still find it. Patience and a variety of brushes are required.

You can still get tsp in the paint prep section of your local hardware big box. I have some lab grade 99.9% iso so may try it to see but really want to try tumbling to remove that sick glass layer. Thanks for the suggestions.
