Devit?

I've been opening some enameled bottles into tall cups. But I keep getting a haze in the glass. See the attached pic of one. I'm guessing this is devitrification.

It happens about half the time; and usually it's visible on the glass within the first couple heats. Washing the bottles with soap and water isn't helping. Should I be using nastier solvents? The last one got the haze on the inside, instead of the outside like this example. What am I missing?

where is the enamel applied? What is the enamel? What is the base glass?

those might have been sprayed with titanium, they use it to prevent scratching,
i dont know any way to remove it.

actually, titanium is now a regular additive to enamels for density and whiteness.
