I have a rather concrete issue for those of you well versed in the chemical sciences:
I know for a fact that most of the bottles I am using have been contaminated on the inside with vegetable oil during label removal. In retrospect, my situation could have been easily prevented, but in the mean time I do have hundreds of sub-optimal bottles that I badly want to use. I want to dissolve and remove the fat to make the bottles usable again.
- Is fat dissolution possible while retaining the integrity of the glassware?
- Which detergents or chemicals should i use, and what is their actual effect?
