Subject: removing labels
Date: 1989-06-23 17:40:12 GMT

I've found the best way to remove old labels (and yes, even foil)
is to soak the *OUTSIDES* of the bottles in a washing soda
(Sodium Carbonate) solution. I use about 1/4 cup in about 6 gallons
of hot water. The reason that I stress "outsides" is because I once
left a sink full of bottles and washing soda solution overnight and
got a white sediment stuck to the glass (both inside and out).
I managed to remove the sediment with lemon juice, but since then
I just stand water-filled bottles in washing soda solution.
