I like to use OxyClean. 99% of the labels are either floating in the water or can be easily pulled off. I'm starting to save the labels and this method works great for that.

I soak in hot soapy water for about 20 minutes. Then I peel/scrape off most of it with my finger nails. After that, everything remaining comes off in a few seconds with an SOS Oxy pad.

Another way to do it that works great for me:

Put the bottles in the dishwasher. If you have it use the extra hot setting. Don't use soap obviously. You can also do it in the rinse only cycle to save time if you washer will dry after "rinse only". Then when the bottles have been rinsed, about halfway through the drying cycle, open up the dishwasher and they should peel right off. The soaking with water, combined with the steamy environment of the drying cycle gets them so loose some may just fall off on their own! Make sure to check the bottom of the dishwasher for loose labels. I have had great success with this method. Just don't forget to pull them out before the drying cycle dries them or you have to start all over.

Drinking- Water
Primary- Empty
Secondary- Strong Dark and Belgian
