How can I use a kiln to melt glass bottles?

Answer

A kiln is a furnace or an oven that is used for burning, baking or drying porcelain or bricks. The kiln can be used to melt glass bottles by first, taking off any labels on the bottle and then spay the outside of the bottle. Then, set the prepared bottle on its side directly on a kiln and set the kiln on. Finally, switch off the kiln and do not open it until the inside temperature has returned to room temperature and remove the bottle.
