New milk bottle for my collection. I know the company was in Pittsburgh. Not sure exactly how old this bottle is but it appears quite old. Does this need to be cleaned up and how?
thanks

    Just soap and warm water. I found the best bottle brush I have ever used. Go online and find a company that sells wine making supplies. They sell a 16" long handle brush to clean the inside of those long necked wine bottles. It works great, especially for old soda and beer bottles.
    Hope this helps.

    I used to collect bottles and I soaked all mine (sometimes in tubs) in Muriatic acid.
    I remember the name because I bought so much of it. I was advised at the time that it really took out the dirt and it did really work well, I have to say. The only downside is that Muriatic acid is dangerous and does give off pretty toxic fumes so best to use it outdoors or in a shed. I love this bottle, nothing like it. Phil.

    Thanks for the love and the advice Phil, not so sure I will attempt the toxic fumes. I am extremely clumsy. I still need to look into getting a brush for it or something. I have been busy adding to the collection.
