I was asked how I removed labels from all those wine bottle, so this was my method. I filled up a big rubbermaid bin with water and a little dish soap, then sunk all the bottles and let them soak over night. By morning, some of the labels had lifted off and were floating ing the water. For the rest off the bottles, I used a single edged razor blade and scraped them off. Another method you can use with labels that don't soak off, is to use a heat gun to soften the glue. The label then peels right off, though this method can be a bit smelly.
