I’ve now got an easy system for label removal. First, I peel as much off as possible. Then I soak in warm water with a dash of eucalyptus. I leave the glue to soften until any remaining label is soaked through. Then, I take steel wool and more eucalyptus and scrub away all the gunky paper and glue. After that, it just needs a wash with Castile soap to remove the oil. Depending on the label, this can be a 5sec task or a 10min task – but it’s worth it if you find something perfect for your needs. I love how beautiful a used container looks after the label is removed.
