Bump....this was a great thread and saved me a bunch of time trying to remove painted labels THANK YOU



edit: at 2x strength it took 2 hours to remove the labels on the Stone brewing bottles but the Otto Brewing Moose Juice Stout is un touched as of yet even a copper scouring pad wont etch it yet.

Does "Saniclean" work as well?

I use a product called citranox at work for cleaning and sanitizing musical instruments. It's commercial use is for cleaning large scale industrial food equipment. We use about a 4% solution at work. Maybe I'll take a quart of the concentrate home and try it on my corona bottles. I tried toluene acetone and lacquer thinner but they wouldn't touch it. That is some strong paint/ink they use. I couldn't buff it off with a stitched buffing wheel and red compound.

I haven't used starsan at all yet. When I run low on c-brite and iodophor Ill get some to mess with.

Anyone find a better method for removing the glue off the heineken pony bottles. I've been just peeling off the plastic soaking the bOttles and using a scuff pad

I proposed this idea to the chemist I know since she likes to drink and it's like a little challenge LOL

I too am wondering about the best way to remove Heineken bottle labels. Darn near impossible. Hot water and oxyclean loosen a little but then I have a sticky patch and have no idea how to get rid of that. Tried Goo-Gone. Didn't work.

On a side note. Hot water and oxyclean works great on Modelo bottles. Then I boil the foil cap for a few seconds and it scrapes right off. Nice clean Modelo bottles. Awesome!

Bumping this old thread...

I've tried the high dose of concentration of star-san for corona bottles (free from a neighbour) and after 2-3 days, the white paint rubs off easily. The blue paint however doesn't seem to want to come off. Will soaking them for a few extra days take care of this or will I have to try muriatic acid? I've got a jug of that stuff that I was supposed to use for the pool but never had to.

thanks
