Bottle labels

It is becoming more difficult to remove commercial labels. Hot water and a pan scourer will remove all paper but they usually leave a stubborn glue. The simple solution is not to attempt to remove the glue but simply cover it with your own labels. 4 x 4 per A4 sheet covers most front labels and 8 x 8 covers most back labels.

I tend to soak off or peel off the label and then, when dry, use a solvent like "De-solv-it" and some paper towel. I can clean even the stickiest bottle in about a minute.
