Step 1: Fill Your Pot

Use your largest pot and add about 2-3 inches of water.

Step 2: Boil Water

On medium/high heat boil water.

Step 3: Add Water to Your Bottle

Fill your bottle 1/4 of the way full of water so it doesn't float.

Step 4: Boiling Your Bottle

Lay your bottle down on the side in which you want to remove the label. You can add 1-2 bottles each time you do the boiling process to cut down on time. Boil your bottle for 5-8 minutes. I have found the longer the better but some labels come off very quickly so keep repeating the process based on individual results.

Step 5: Scrape Your Bottle

Using care, remove your bottle from the boiling water and place into sink. Immediately after removing use a flat object such as a kitchen knife and carefully scrape your bottle from top to bottom. I choose a sharp flat kitchen knife for this process as it seems to work best.

Step 6: Wash You Bottle

After you have completely scraped the label off you can at this time simply use a sponge or steel wool and some dish washing soap to finish cleaning off the glue and left over label. I prefer using steel wool but the rough side of a sponge works just as well.

Step 7: VOILA!!!

And Voila!!! After these very easy steps you have a perfect clean wine bottle for any project!! Enjoy!!!

    For small bottles I hold the label over the steam exhaust port of my rice cooker and peel off, I knock out two tasks at once then. ☺
