Soda Does The Job

Removing labels from a glass bottle results in gunk that you need to deal with. But there is one household solution to remove labels without gunk: a water bath of soda crystals.
My grandmother used to swear by soda crystals to do most job, she would say it was great to get grease out of clothes, great to get your whites white, an ideal drain and sink un-blocker and an all round good household cleaning product.
You can buy soda crystals very cheaply from your local supermarket and it is normally found in the laundry isle.
Simply fill the kitchen sink with hot water, dropped about half a cup of soda crystals into the water and let dissolve then submerge the bottle to soak for half an hour, the label will then just slid off easily.
