    Goo Gone. You can buy this anywhere. Spray or rub on your bottles. It takes a while for the Goo Gone to soak in

    and you may have to reapply, but eventually the labels will

    come off. Use more Goo Gone on the adhesive if needed.

    I have used Goo Gone for years to remove all kinds of labels and tapes that have glue or sticky backing.

    Good luck!

    Peel/scrape off what you can. Use Goo Gone, WD40, or nail polish remover to remove the adhesive residue.

    After you soak in water and peel off, if there is a sticky residue you can use a bit of vegetable oil to remove that. Then clean with soapy dish water, I prefer blue Dawn.

    Here is the EASY, NO-SCRAPE way. The labels will slide right off.

    Fill a sink or bathtub with warm or hot water to cover bottles. Add 1/2 cup washing soda to sink or 1 cup to bathtub. This is NOT baking soda. You can find washing soda in the laundry detergent aisle of your grocery or on Amazon ($4.41). Let bottles soak at least an hour (I left them overnight). Labels will slide right off. Hope this is helpful.
