A friend gave me a bunch of wine bottles for my first batch of wine (I helped her empty some of them!). I can't seem to get all the sediment out of the bottles, though I did get the dust and spiders. I tried soap and hot water, and soap and boiling water, and let them sit a little before scrubbing, but even with a bottle brush I can still see sediment around the base of some of them. I even tried white vinegare and baking soda, but no joy. So I bought some new bottles for my first batch because I'm basically a coward, but would like to recycle bottles as much as possible. I usually rinse pretty well after emptying a bottle; is that sufficient to prevent sediment from lingering, or is it from the wine itself before emptying the bottle? I got a couple of products from a local winery after being warned off bleach; will they do the trick, or is there another method? After getting the labels off the recycled ones I hate to give up on them! I have B-Brite and Iodophor BTF solution from the winery.
