I remove all my labels, but I'll admit i'm a little OCD about this stuff.
In fact I almost cut two fingers off yesterday using a box cutter to remove extra thick foil on a wine bottle neck.
Right about the time I thought I should cut away from my own hand was the same time the box cutter attacked me.
I'll be fine though
