Just read this whole thread and LoL, dude, pick up a cheap bottle brush, grab a 5 gal bucket and mix up some OXY. Toss a bunch of bottles in , grab your brush and give a quick twist, rinse and dry........then go enjoy a beer.

In the amount of time you soaked and rinsed and ya d a ya da, you're all done
Nothing Left to do but smile and drink beer.....

I just wanted to clarify when people say oxifree they mean oxiclean free, the one with no extra perfumes or other crap.
When I bottle I look through the bottles into the light. If there's crud in the bottles I pour some oxiclean into them and let them sit for 10 minutes or so and rinse them thoroughly with hot water. When that's done they're always nice and clean inside. Then I spray the whole batch inside and around lip with starsan in a spray bottle.

If that doesn't scrub it clean, TOSS IT..

This works great, albeit I used popcorn kernels/seed (yes, unpopped) and PBW solution. Worked way better than using the bottle brush I have.

I prefer PBW to oxyclean,it's easier to rinse off insomuch as itwon't build up on surfaces over hours of soaking. My 2c worth...
