Cleaning a Bottle with Rice

016
Mom had this bottle filled with some old vinegar and after emptying it out there was still some gunk on the interior walls that would't come out. I heard about this method of using rice somewhere ( Martha?) and decided to try it out.

All you need to do is to pour in a couple of table spoons of uncooked rice in the bottle, add an inch of water and then shake vigorously for a few minutes.

And it works! I didn't expect it to work that well but it did. The rice scrubbed the inside clean. I've heard coarse salt works too. Will try that next time!
