Has anyone every heard of cleaning really dirty bottle and wine bottles with Salt Rocks and Rubbing alcohol? A friend gave me a bunch of bottles and said the quick way to clean them is by pouring a little rubbing alcohol and some salt rocks in it and shake it to clean the inside...then rinse and santize like normal.....

Chad,
By Salt Rocks, do you mean rock salt crystals? I have used BBs to dislodge really hard "yuck" on the bottom. Try soaking them for a week in trisodium phosphate (STP) then rinsing. If you are doing cases and cases, rubbing alcohol would be very expensive.

Chad, I support Marlon's thoughts. I have had a lot of luck with a strong bleach solution. I just put the bottles in a 5 gal bucket (or 2) with water and a bunch (? cup) of bleach. An overnight or 24 hour soak seems to release the most stubborn deposits, or at least make them amenable to the ole brush + elbow grease. Just be sure to use a well ventilated room and rinse the bottles before you brush them so bleach won't spray all over the place.

Sure your friend wasn't talking about cleaning bongs?

To clean bongs I just made myself very tiny like a very microscopic alien like the ones that are planted here by the government and I would just hop into the bong and just inhale and then scratch the sides clean with this really awesome f**kin' wire brush that I found at a Dead show...
