    Soak in boiling water. And if really dirty or labels to remove add some dish detergent and just let them sit ( I usually fill mine with warm/hot tap water, then put in the kitchen sink in a plastic bin and pour water from my kettle over them til they are covered and let them sit overnight )
    If they are the types of bottles with labels, by the time the water has cooled you should be able to wipe the labels away with relatively little problem.

    If there is gunk inside the bottles that you can't get out, put water and raw rice (about a tablespoon), and a drop of dish washing detergent, cover and shake, shake, shake! Just don't use hot or boiling water if you are using Minute Rice or it might, well, cook. :)

    Crumble a few denture cleaning tablets and use a funnel to pour them into your bottle. Add hot tap water and they‘ll start to fiz. Let them soak for an hour or two, then use a bottle brush and rinse.
    Denture tablets also work well to clean coffee and tea stains out of porcelain cups, pitchers and pots.
    It can also diminish hard water marks on porcelain surfaces in the bathroom too.
