The perks of living away from home is that you’ll pick up useful and ingenious household tips. Ever had difficulties removing certain stubborn spots, stains or residues from a glass bottle with a narrow neck? Even with a long brush? If you’ve never had these problems, then lucky you but for some of us, cleaning these bottles are a pain.
Fortunately for us, there is an ingenious solution! The bartender’s trick is to use rice. Cheap rice.
It’s so simple that you’ll smack yourself for not thinking about it. Pour a handful of rice and soda water into the dirty bottle and start shaking it vigorously. The rice will help dislodge whatever grime that was caught at the edges and corners of the bottle.
It’ll be an arm workout for sure but it works like magic. You can now use the bottle for juices and teas, not just plain water!
