I have an idea for the usage of all the water that comes out of the wort chiller when I'm cooling. I was thinking of putting the output hose into a bucket with some oxyclean and my bottles that need to be de-labeled. At least this way all that water serves some purpose.
My only concern is that the water may be too hot. What do you think? Do you think the bottles can withstand water around 150 degrees or am I asking for a disaster?
The bottles can stand that if they can stand going in my dishwasher. The water is hot in the beginning but only for about 5 minutes. Oxyclean probably works better in warmer water anyway, but thats speculation...

If you're that worried about it, you could always put a little bit of cold water in the bucket first, to absorb the initial shock of hot water, so it wouldn't get too hot. I really don't think you have anything to worry about though.
