Default What to do with this?!?

A friend of mine gave me an awesome bottle and I would really like to use it for something other than decoration. The problem is it has a basket woven around it. Whats the best way to clean it? I can't very well soak it in oxiclean. I could carefully fill it with a solution and scrub with a brush. The problem there is that I can't really see into it because of the basket. I think it would be a really cool bottle for a mead or apfelwein. Thoughts, suggestions, solution?

that is rad! honestly... fill it slowly with an oxyclean solution, let it sit for a day, dump it out, refill it with hot water once or twice and dump it out and you should be good! only issue is... i'd fill it with something uncarbonated. because you wont know if it can handle the carbonation... so mead. apfle...howeveryouspellit. wine. etc.

cool find though!
