Exactly, I'd been doing a post-oxyclean soak in vinegar water but it bugged me to have to do it twice. So now I use oxy for laundry only.

Use Bass Ale bottles. I don't bottle anymore but when I did I always saved the Bass Ale bottles. The glue they use comes off with a simple soak of water. No detergents or oxyclean.

at least this worked several years ago. They may have changed the glue. I dunno.

Why not use Goof Of or Goo-Gone. Brings the sticky off very easily, give her a good rinse and your set to go as long as none gets inside bottles but thats unlikely if you goofoff a rag and then scrub the bottle.
