Regarding REMOVAL - I've done a few things but the fastest one stroke removal that seems to work 98% -is putting the bottles into the oven at 200 - 250 for between 5 and 10 minutes then take a corner of the label and it just pulls off usually with the glue - so much faster than soaking in water or oxiclean - not saying you won't every need to go that route but for 98 out of 100 - this will be a time saver
Is this for all labels, or just the plastic/vinyl (I don't know what their made of) labels? The labels that are stuck on with mucilage, that is, water soluble glue, come off easily with a couple-hour soak in PBW.
