Hi!
Muratic acid? Hydrogen peroxide? Vinegar? Don't want to tumble - some bottles are too small and fragile. Also, some are early 1800's/1900's perfume bottles. Hole is very small. Cloudiness is a huge proble. Any thoughts appreciated. I don't trust Google advice.

Cloudiness may need a tumble. Welcome to the site. Leon.

Welcome to the forum! Unfortunately if the cloudiness is caused by damage to the glass (very common for dug bottles) it can't be chemically cleaned off and like Leon says will only be removable through tumbling.
