Default Help with oxiclean

So I've read multiple threads on the stuff and the slime/scum/white shiet that sticks to bottles.I've used vinegar and star san with success(just impractical),and hot water and anger without success.

I have a batch of dunkelweizen ready for bottle,but I'm afraid of since I find de-labeling/cleaning the bottles such a hassle.I think I need some tips on tried and trued oxiclean usage.

I really,really,really wanna drink my beer guys.

Just fill up a sink or bucket and dump half a scoop of oxyclean in and soak overnight the labels will fall off during the soak usually.

Go to your local lowes and get the red box of TSP (trisodiumphosphate) and mix it with your oxyclean in a 30:70 TSP : oxy ratio by weight.

It pretty makes PBW and gets rid of the white film problem. I had the same problem too until I did that. And it's a 4 dollar solution.

In most cases most of the glue is disolved while soaking but when it leaves a little film i just take a ss or copper scrubbie and it comes right off

I remember reading in some thread where the poster said it was important to use the TSP/90 (available at Ace HW), and not the regular TSP. I haven't tried it, so don't know. IIRC, the TSP/90 is sodium metasilicate.

I will try TSP first since the poster sounds like he's used it before.
