    Default Water bottle cleaning

    Hi all,
    Any tips on how to clean out these water bottles. I've used a lot of elbow grease to get it to this point. Can I use any chemicals to make it look new??

    Cheers...Paul

    Scoop some gravel and dirt into the bottle, throw some jif in , do up the lid and start to boogie to your fave disco track using the bottle as a percusion instrument.
    Hose out when finished

    G'day,
    detergent, stronger detergent, even stronger detergent or buy a new bottle.
    You could try freezing it and banging it to shake out the bits.

    You realy want crushed gravel because it has square edges instead os ball bearings or river pebles with round edges.

    CLR (calcium, lime, rust) cleaner ex Bunnings worked on my R10 glass bottle.

    I can tell you domestic ovens satisfactorily preheat cylinder heads prior to brazing a broken heater tap lug.

    Being involved in the satisfactory repair of my brother's Cooper S I can attest to this.

    However, the oil smell remains in the oven for ages and does not compliment the Sunday roast one bit.

    It was my brother who felt the consequences for his actions and not me fortunately.

    Edit: The reason could have been because the week before, the clothes washer donated 1 meter of hot water hose to his car heater.

    Will have to try this next time !
    I have always used degreaser, let soak for a while and a long handled small brush like a " dish washing brush" (to keep the theme going) and if necessary some rag on the end of suitable screwdriver for the stubborn patches. Then hit it with water pressure from the garden hose.

    Can't stand seeing filthy overflow bottles when the coolant has supposedly been changed!

    Thanks everyone. I'll start with CLR as option one then nappiesan as option two as I have both in the cupboard. Failing that I'll crank up some of the other suggestions.
    Thanks again

    Paul, try also hot water and about 6 denture cleaning tablets for that volume. I have a packet of home brand ones for all sorts of stuff like this. Leave for about an hour.

    Denture cleaning tabs are just plain old baking soda.

    My small kids were quite adept at getting their hands into the bottle with a scourer.

    Are they? They certainly work. I assume they have something in them to make them effervesce?

    I also use them on stained tea cups.

    I tried them on my teeth too, but my mouth blew apart.
