I was wondering if anyone had tried removing this coating. I've read that it scratches quite easily so I was wondering about having a go with a glass scraper, or does anyone know of any chemicals that would strip it?
I have one bottle that seems to have a particularly thick coating and it's bugging me!
I've been pondering asking mathmos if they'll add an option of non-coated bottles for those of us who don't use them as kids lighting and don't care about the shatterproof properties...
Perfect! this is exactly what I hoped to hear. I hate the way that the coating makes the bottles look. My violet/turquoise isn't so bad, but my yellow/orange is horrendous.
Does it affect the etched logo?
Indeed, I had considered bumping the bulb by 5w and using telstar/baby bottles, but my favourite colourway is the violet turquoise which isn't available (god knows why they have different colour schemes for the two identical bottles...)
Just did my violet/turquoise this morning. A bit trickier to get started as it wasn't as thick as the yellow one, so I went around the edge of the top where it goes wide instead of in the dent, worked a treat again.
Definitely a happy bunny!
