Default Label Removal from Bottles

Hey all
I am trying to remove the labels and sticky **** underneath from bottles to use later on for my own brew. Is there an easy trick or chemical to do this.. or do I just have to scrub the **** out of em like I have been. Thanks.

Soak all the bottles in a big bucket with a scoop of oxyclean for about an hour. The labels and the sticky goo will slide right off. No scrubbing.

A nice soak in Oxyclean. Labels should slide right off. Rinse extremely well afterwords, but you should be good to go.

EDIT: Fast fingered Dude.
