Your bottles are fine.
You just need a lightly acidic wash to get the frosting off - fill up a bucket with water and add a dash (or two) of white vinegar. A quick soak will clear the frosting, and if you just do a quick water dunk afterward you'll have spot-free bottles once dry.
I usually soak mine in Oxy to delabel for a week (adding bottles over the week), then into vinegar for a day, then a quick water bath and then stored upside down to dry in a milk crate.
