Default getting labels off

I am new to brewing and have been saving all my callable bottles to bottle my first brew. What's the best/easiest way to get labels off.

Thanks in advance for your input.

I use the run off from my wort chiller in to a bucket of double strength starsan and an over night soak.

Soak them in oxyclean and hot water for anywhere from a few hours to overnight and then rinse thoroughly. If there is any "scale" left on the bottles after soak them in a diluted weak acid, like water and lemonjuice or vinegar, or dilluted starsan.

A hot water soak in oxyclean. Some brands will slide right off once the glue melts. Other's you'll have to take a kitchen sponge to it (the kind with the ruff side.)
