    Default Do You Ever Clean Your Bottles?

    Just out of curiosity..

    I was going through my shelves and noticed a few bottles that track up dirt, and fingerprints, etc. Notably A*Men's metal flask, The cap of Michael Kors, and the grooves and crevices on various bottles/caps.

    I found myself cleaning these earlier.. awkward moment, but they look brand new now. I am proud of them, lol.

    I've been lugging around a Dior Poison bottle for over 20 years and it being a splash bottle, scent has dried around the neck of the opening and around the glass topper so I've cleaned that once. It smelled amazing, hahah.
    Looking for THE femme fatale scent. If you think there is something I should smell please PM me!

    Every month or so I'll take all the frags out of my glass cabinet, clean them all and the shelves, and maybe re-organise them all . How dust gets in I'll never know :O

    Keep most in the boxes, but the ones that are not in boxes I dust every few weeks.

    No. I keep them in storage boxes anyway.

    No, I don't display my bottles - I keep them in the original boxes, and store those in big boxes in my basement.

    I have them out of boxes and they don't catch much dust, but I guess annual clean would be important.

    Cleaning person just dusts them off from time to time.

    One in a very long while, they might require a slight dust off.

    Sometimes I notice dust, sometimes I'll see a few fingerprints...sometimes I just let it go, but every now and then I clean one or two. I very, very rarely clean the whole collection at one time, although I do rotate some around or to various places.

    No I don't . Fingerprints are not dirt.

    Must be a PIA to wear a perfume everyday.

    I imagine you having to down a flight or two till you're in the basement, then pulling out a box, opening it, digging through layer of perfume boxes till you find the one you want, then opening it's box, spraying, putting it back in it's box, putting that box into the big box, then layering perfume boxes on top, closing the big box, putting the big box back on the shelf or its spot, going back upstairs.

    The day ended already.

    for swap/sale:

    No, that would be a pain. When I buy a bottle of something, I decant into a 5 ml atomizer, then store the rest of the bottle in its original box in the basement. I have all my 5ml atomizers in an armoire dresser in my bathroom closet. When one runs out - that is the only time I need to go downstairs and get the bottle. That way every fragrance I own is at my fingertips, I could take it with me if I choose (I rarely do, but then I have the option), easily sorted, etc.

    Strictly one the outside, yes. The occasional dusting of the box and/or the bottle, but this is pretty much where it stops.

    I recently got a bottle of Kouros in a swap, the bottle arrived and was just fine, but had a bit of dirt and a few scratches on it, nothing major at all, just normal wear and tear on that white coated bottle over the years. I decided to take one of those magic erasers and see if it would help, well it worked miracles and my bottle looks brand new! I wish I would have taken a before picture, but I was amazed.
    I do tend to take a microfiber towel and shine the regular glass bottles up a bit if I notice them getting dirty, it just makes them look better.

    I just wipe them off with whatever shirt I have on when I notice one is dusty.

    Not usually, but just today, I cleaned the metal plates on top of my Tom Ford small bottles.

    No. My PA brings them to me on a small, silver, Cartier tray from a room I've never been inside of. They appear to be clean and free of fingerprints.
