Stocking Stuffers

I ran this post last year, but thought I would update the links, etc. in case you might be shopping for those bottle collectors in your family soon.  I am also still offering my book with free shipping to the U.S.  You can check out the link about my book here: http://www.yourbook.com/BookInfo/IP31179-09.asp

What do you buy an avid bottle collector for Christmas?  Well-one thing they always need are cleaning supplies. Bottles can be a pain to clean, but these products make it a whole lot easier.

Bottle Brushes: It is probably the most needed and used item. A few places that have some great quality brushes would be either Lee Valley :

And Crate and Barrel has some good brushes too:

What about that gunk that sits on the bottom of those bottles in the hard to reach corners? This Decanter and Bottle Washing Kit from Brushtech is great for that. It consists of a funnel and ball bearings. Put in a mild detergent, some hot water and drop in the ball bearings and swirl around. Removes all the dried up mess in the corners. You can find it on Amazon, or do a search for it on the internet. Here is the Amazon link:

And a great cleaner for those ACL bottles is a product called Bar Keepers Friend. It can be found at your local grocery store or even some hardware stores. It is a mild abrasive similar to Comet, but specifically made to clean glass. It is a great product. Here is the company website:

Also be sure and check out my ‘Bottle Books To Read’ section. Several titles are available from Amazon.

Hope this gives you a few ideas. You can even buy them for yourself for Christmas!
