yes, here are a couple of pics from removing the paint from a case of 12oz bottles. Under bed plastic storage container, fill the bottles with water so they do not float, then add the solution just high enough to cover the labels. The next day the paint had mostly fallen off without having to scrub or rub at all. The CLR seems to be able to be used over and over again.

CLR nor sure how much and water topped off to cover all of the label.
sat for about a week only because I was busy/lazy and didn't get around to cleaning them, but they all wiped off easily with my hand.

Nice. I'd prefer to not use the muriatic again. I did one emergency dip in the pool when I was cleaning with it.

I have a bunch of those bottles that I purchased from Midwest. Is that where you got them?

For rogue bottles I've use a metal scrub pad (made for cleaning pots) I got at GFS and they came off fairly easily. The metal scrubber did nothing to stone tho. Might try this clr thing once I get a few built up.

Thanks for posting these ideas. Before I started home brewing I collected a bunch of Stone bottles cause I thought they would be cool to use for my own IPAs. Then I decided that it wouldn't be as cool as I thought, so I was going to throw them away. Glad I saw this post.
