A lot of them slip off easily in a 24 hr Oxyclean soak in HOT water.
Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew

If you are just trying to remove the labels for a collection of sorts I recommend using 3" wide clear tape (or laminate) and apply it to the label. Rub in hard to get it to adhere good.

When you peel off the tape the top layer of the paper will separate from the glued part (on the glass) and you can remove the top layer without any problems.

This is what I do to get the labels off of the White Labs vials. The glued part comes off with Goop Off.

They'll also come off quicker if you use a heftier dose of oxyclean (or no name equivalent).
I may not be an expert, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express........ 6 months ago.
