Can I submerge my bottles in bleach to clean them, or will that ruin the color? I don't see the harm in using bleach on a clear bottle but with other colors, I am not sure.
I usually use a brush but I was just wondering.Bleach is just not good for cleaning truly antique bottles. Always good to start with a room temp soak in dish soapy water and use a bottle brush. After rinsing and letting them dry you can then examine to see if they are clean enough to display and if you are satisfied then you're done. If more cleaning is needed then .... ask for advice on the particular stain or fouling that you are unhappy about. each different soiling fouling will usually require some-what different attention. But! I've never had good results from bleach.
