Wash Interiors of Bottles
Place discarded wine bottles under faucet of hot water one at a time. Run water inside each bottle for approximately 30 seconds until interior of bottle starts to overflow. Tip: If the wine bottle has extra residue inside, add dishwashing detergent to help dilute it.
Thoroughly rinse the exterior of the bottle with hot water under the faucet.
Once the exterior has been rinsed, any stickers or wrappers on the bottle's exteriors should become loose. Peel stickers or wrappers off exterior and throw away.
