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.

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.

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.
