Those two Cokes look like loose dirt on the outside that will easily clean off with a soapy scrub with a stiff brush and then maybe #0000 steel wool. It won't hurt the glass at all. Hint: start off getting the outside nice and clean before trying to clean the inside, makes it easier. That first clear bottle with the cap looks like the cloudiness is on the inside. For that, (and all the others) try water and cleanser, or beach sand and scrub all around using a bottle brush. Some cloudiness on bottles (old ones) only tumbling will clear them up. For bottles you may find in creeks with that orange or green "mong" on/in them there are stronger mixes I use. That painted Coke is not very old and is faded so nothing will bring the red color back.
