Cleaning a Glass Cruet

I have a small glass cruet that has a film on the inside of it. I've run it through the dishwasher and the film will not come off. Any ideas on what I can do to clean the inside of it? A bottle brush won't work because the bottle is round at the bottom. Thanks!

Hi Maryeileen!! You might want to try denture cleaning tablets :)

You could let it soak with some white vinegar. It depends on what the film is. If it's from being washed in the dishwasher too much from softened water and dishwasher detergent then the film cannot be gotten off.

Great ideas so far--since you can't use a bottle brush, how about some uncooked rice to swirl/scrub the insides?

I once read that if you put raw rice in a container and shake it well, it will "scrape" the film from the side.

salt & ice: commonly used to get stains out of coffee carafes, etc. depending on the size of the bottle opening. you may have to crush the ice to get it in the bottle. Put enough ice in to cover up to 1/3 of the bottle. Add some table salt and swirl the mixture around in the bottle. This will get the film out. Be sure to rinse in COLD water, as hot water will crack/break the glass. Let the container return to room temperature to wash it completely afterwards so that the extra salty taste doesn't get added to your next flavor in the bottle.

Thank you for your suggestions!

(The film is from chocolate soymilk.)

Fill your cruet with hot water and drop in a denture cleaning tablet. Let it soak until the water is at room temperature. Then dump out this mixture and rinse. Those denture cleaning tabs usually do the job.
