Default Bottle Cleaning?

Anyone know the best way to get crud and sea growth off of old bottles? Thanks for any help. WOLF

i dont personally have any experience, but this might help
http://www.antiquebottles.com/cleaning.html
this also might help with identification
http://bottleinfo.historicbottles.com/
i also read of people using efferdent (denture cleaner), liquid dish detergent, CLR, or white vinegar and even adding some fine sand as an abrasive. let us know if any of these work. good luck
