Cleaning Narrow-Neck Bottles and Vases

906-ss-cleaning-bottles

Here’s a trick for cleaning a vase or bottle with a narrow neck, without using a bottle brush. All you need is:

  • Warm water
  • White vinegar
  • Liquid dish detergent
  • Uncooked rice

Add the ingredients to the bottle and swirl. The rice acts as an abrasive to break up the stain. Watch the video for details.

  1. How could you suggest pouring uncooked rice down the drain ? You better plan on showing how to unclog the drain. Normally really like show, but this tip really disappoints me.

  2. I am with Carole about dumping the rice down the drain. Another way is cut a sponge in half, make a slot in each half, slip in magnets, put one inside the bottle and use the other one outside to scrub the bottle, or you could use a bottle brush.

  3. Then I would just say pour it through a strainer to sift the rice as an additional step. All the same, great recommendation!
