    Definitly sounds like time for new bottles. I know, we all acquire attachments to our "favorite" items, but sometimes you just have to replace them.

    I recently cleaned my drum-style fixer container with spigot. I tired the following without success:

    70% isopropyl
    98% isopropyl
    Denatured ethanol
    Naptha
    Concentrated fresh fixer
    Acetic acid
    Laquer thinner
    Mineral spirits
    Soap and water

    I wound up just scraping most of the residue off with a "Chore Boy".

    I once had what I presumed was a silver compound from overused fixer, plating out on the surface of nalgeen bottles. physical scrubbing was the only solution to removing it. It came off in flakes.
