Have you tried vinegar? I use vinegar and water in a spray bottle for most cleaning chores around the house. Vinegar, soda, salt and bleach are my favorites for cleaning and deodorizing.

Have you tried putting a couple of Alka-Seltzer tablets in there and letting it fizz real good?
What about a bottle brush?

Milk on glass surfaces needs a three-step cleaning process with three different cleaning agents. Unless this is done right, a residue is left called 'milkstone'. You know how tough dried Elmer's glue is? That tells you how tough it is to get dried milkstone off. It takes long sitting with water to soften it, then a strong acid rinse. Vinegar is not, not, strong enough. Good luck.

Polident denture tablets for cleaning dentures
is what an antique dealer I know uses to clean out old bottles.

Put 2 tablets into the bottle, add water,
leave overnight, empty and rinse.
She swears by this cleaning method.

Good Luck

Let it sit a couple of days with straight vinegar in it. Than scrub with a bottle brush. If that doesn't do it the bottom of the bottle may have become etched by the heavy washing machines used at bottling plants, in which case, love it as it is!

You will not ever get that haze out. It will look good till it dries. The only way is polish it out. Look under bottle cleaning, bottle tumbling, if you don't want to spend any money put a little baby oil in it and spin it around to coat the sides, then turn it up let run out 24 hrs.

I agree with Post By Linda, using the vinegar.

Is this a glass bottle? If so, have you tried

washing it in the dishwasher? You might need
a couple of washes. Sometimes that works on glass
sometimes it doesn't.

If it's plastic, then definitely use vinegar and
if you can fit a cloth down inside, use that to
rub the inside and rinse well with cold water after.
