i was gonna say sand/little bit of gravel (via eggshell method) and/or test 
tube cleaner brush if long enough.  also one has to wonder when these stains or 
whathaveyou become or are inert.
tray cleaner does work well in some cases.

Subject: [pure-silver] Cleaning Brown Bottles
Someone gave me several nice old Kodak brown glass bottles.  One of
them was crudded up beyond use, but the others are almost usable.
I say "almost" because there is some residue on the inside that will
not come off with repeated hot water/soap/rise cycles.  (I believe
they may once have held D-76.)  The bottle opening is, perhaps
about 20mm but the bottle diameter is probably around 80mm.  This
means it's kind of difficult to get into the bottle to scrub it
out in any reasonable manner.

Any ideas out there of how to get the residue out of these bottles
or should I just toss them into the garbage?
