I have found if you soak bottles in hot water it usually gets the ball rolling. Then I found a wire brush from the bbq grill is unstoppable. If you cant get it off with hot water and one of these brushes give up!

I have been stocking on pull top bottles (non twisty fellows) and cleaned 3.5 doz of them last night! Soaked them in just hot water and the labels just peeled off. Quick rub with a sponge pad and all gleaming clean! Just thought I would brag!!!

Yeah I've got a small list of microbeers whose bottles I will avoid for the same reasons - too hard to get the darn labels off!! So when I'm at the recycling center, i just abandon those bottles for the ones i know are sure-fire winners

I used to scrape off the labels with hot water and a single edge razor blade but anymore i don't even worry about them, just leave them on.
