That thread should help. I usually do an oxyclean and water soak, but heck, sometimes just warm water will do it. Good luck, and welcome aboard!

Oxyclean, warm water, a bathtub, and time is all ya need . . . depending if you do 3 cases at a time like I do the bath tub may not be neccessary

I use a cooler. A couple days in oxyclean and they fall right off....

I use a dishtray, some oxyclean, and warm water. Whatever doesn't peel right off after 12 hours or so, I use a product called goo-gone (available at Target and probably Wal-Mart) that will take any remaining adhesive right off.

i just soak my bottles in my sink with warm water. then after about 30 minutes i peel off what i can with my fingers, and scrub the rest with a dish scrubber brush

bleachwater for a day or 2 gets most of them loose or even completely off. then i use a scraper for some of the more stubborn labels.

I soak the bottles in hot soapy water for a couple of hours and what doesn't come off after the soak,comes off with a scotch brite pad. So far I haven't met a lable I couldn't remove.

15 minutes or so in a one step cleaner soak seems to do the trick for most bottles. I'm becoming more and more convinced that one step is the same thing as oxyclean...
