me Oxyclean, hot water & a final through a dish washer.
Corna bottles i could get the label off even with paint remover
Now Heinken bottles I had to peel the labels then use paint remover
+1 on the oxyclean and a hot water soak.

Use Bass Ale bottles. I don't bottle anymore but when I did I always saved the Bass Ale bottles. The glue they use comes off with a simple soak of water. No detergents or oxyclean.
at least this worked several years ago. They may have changed the glue. I dunno.
Why not use Goof Of or Goo-Gone. Brings the sticky off very easily, give her a good rinse and your set to go as long as none gets inside bottles but thats unlikely if you goofoff a rag and then scrub the bottle.
