Oxyclean soak and razor blade scraper do wonders... You can also scrub the bottles with either BKF or 'goo gone' after to remove any glue residue...

I put my own labels (printed on my color laser printer, using standard paper) on with a glue stick, so removal/cleanup is super easy..

I use this stuff to remove labels. It works great with about a 2 hour soak. The labels just peel off and the adhesive rinses off with water.

i buy guiness imported extra stout, the one brewed in canada and comes in the stubby bottles, well about 5 minutes in hot water lifts the labels right off and i use a scotch brite to get rid of the residue. but most other bottles will perform the same with some oxygen cleanser and some more time. if the label is more of a decal (I.E. McSorleys) use a hair dryer

I never soak mine...just run hot tap water into the bottle so it warms the inside and overflows onto the label, peel it off and use a rough sponge to get the excess glue off. Works for me, but I only do like 6-10 at a time. I do a 6 pack in about 10 min. To each his own.

Thats how i do mine. One at a time when ever i finish a beer i rinse it out and strip the label. Works great.

I use regular old Dawn dish soap in a hotwater bath in the sink. Leave it overnight and they come right off when I get home from work the next day. A light scrubbing with a scrubby pad and the glue comes off too.

I wonder what is cheaper in the end...Dawn or Oxyclean?
