Step 5: Cleaning up the bottle

Picture of Cleaning up the bottle
The laser etcher creates tiny fragments of glass that need to be removed before you are finished.  Use a non-scratch scrubbing pad and while running water over the bottle lightly scrub to remove these particals washing them down the drain.  Once you are satisfied with the state of the bottle you may refill with the beverage of your choice and either cork it up or enjoy it immediately.  I found that dark glass creates more contrast and makes the label more visible, but clear glass with dark liquid will likely have the same effect.
