BOTTLE CLEANING PAGE
This page current as of 9/25/12
Due to an extremely large backlog of work,
we are not accepting any new customers at this time.
Please check back from time to time to see
if this has changed.
We also offer bottle cleaning services.
We use the tumbling method, and can clean bottles up to
5" in diameter. (or corner to corner) We can also do inside
only for bottles and decanters up to 6" in diameter. We've been
in the business for over 12 years, and we've gotten rather good at
it, if we do say so, ourselves! References are available on
We pick up and deliver your bottles at all the shows we attend.
See our 2011 Show Schedule HERE.

Here are a few before and after pictures of some of our work.
All bottles are cleaned at the customer's risk. We use all
reasonable care and caution, and after cleaning literally thousands
of bottles, we consider ourselves experts, but they are
old, and they are made of glass, and from time to time, they do break.
We ask you to carefully inspect all bottles before you send
them to us, and include your findings with the bottles, so that
we can make sure that none have been damaged in shipping, and
that we agree with your assessment. We reserve the right to return,
uncleaned, any bottles which we feel might not survive the cleaning
process. We recommend that you insure your bottles for their full
market value. We will insure them for the same value when we
return them, unless you tell us otherwise.
Customer is responsible for shipping costs, both ways, including
insurance. We normally ship by USPS Priority Mail.
SORRY FOLKS, BUT EVERYTHING IS GOING UP, SO WE ARE FORCED IN RAISE OUR PRICES PER THE FOLLOWING SCHEDULE - THIS IS THE FIRST INCREASE SINCE 1/1/09.
Effective 7/1/12, our rate schedule is as follows:
Normal cleaning - 1-5 bottles, $18.00ea
6 or more bottles, $16.00ea.
Pontiled bottles - Add $1.00ea to the above prices.
Hardship cases - bottles which are going to require a lot of
extra time in the machine, multiple polishing steps, etc, will
be quoted on a case by case basis, before we start to work
NOTE: We have not been following our own rule, regarding
"Hardship cases". The above prices reflect 5-6 days in the machine,
what we consider to be "normal". We are finding, however, that more
and more we are getting work that requires 8, 10 or even 12 days to give
customers the quality of cleaning that they are used to. We WILL be
inspecting all bottles when we receive them, and where we deem it
necessary, we will contact the customer and quote such bottles to
reflect what we honestly think it is going to take to do a good job on them.
Turn around time varies, with our work load, and at the moment is running about 8 weeks. From time to time, we are able to accommodate
requests for a fast turn around. Check with us if you have a special
We prefer payment by check or money order, but can accept PayPal. If
you opt to use PayPal, please add 3% to cover what they charge us.
When your bottles are ready for shipment, we will send you an
invoice, either by email or snail mail, with your total, including
shipping and insurance. Shipment will be made within 1-2
business days of receipt of payment.
Payment should either be made through Paypal, to
or by mail to:
