I used steam this afternoon, from the teapot, and it definitely made the task easier. I'm also positive that this isn't a water based adhesive on the Heineken bottle labels. I had to resort to Goof Off to get the residue off. I still don't know if it's worth the effort, and I'll pass on these bottles again if I can be choosy about it, but since I did need a few more right now this worked.
