Cleaning Bottles

I had some time today so I figured I’d try to clean off my stockpile of beer bottles I had.  Well, two hours later I had 51 16oz bottles and 17 ‘bombers’ ready to use.A few weeks ago I purchased a $2.99 bucket from Lowe’s to soak the bottles in hot soapy water. I used the bucket as a ‘prep’ area to get k to actually clean the bottles

Tips

  • Use gloves:  It may seem silly, but your hand will wrinkle in this long process.
  • Use a hard core brillo style pad.  I picked up a copper one at the store.
  • I used I hard plastic cake scraper to help with stubborn labels.  It saved my hands.

  1. Your best bet here is just to add sodium bicarb….baking soda to the water. That’s what I use and it pretty much gets all the wrapper off in no time.
