Cleaning Odd Shaped Bottles

We received this gorgeous, unique pitcher from Crate and Barrel as a wedding present. I love it and use it often, but find it very difficult to clean. Even a baby bottle brush doesn't clean the bottom side underneath the handle. So after a few other attempts I discover that pouring about a half of a cup of raw, hard rice into the bottom helps scrub even the hardest to reach places. Add a little soapy water and shake for a minute or two. The rice acts as mini bristles reaching into every possible crevice. Be sure to discard the used rice in the garbage rather than the sink since it will still be hard.
