    The label didn’t come off using baking soda and vinegar in my case (though I no longer waited beyond an hour as I was excited to check, haha!) but nonetheless did the trick and made the peeling process smooth! Thanks a bunch, mate, and cheers!

    Testing removal on an auxiliary label you do not want to keep doesn’t always work. I soaked my wine bottle in water and detergent. The back label come off overnight. The front label did not come off at all. Obviously different adhesives are used.

    Hey, thanks a lot for this post! I just (successfully) used your soaking method (hot water, 1tsp vinegar, .25 tsp baking powder) to safely and completely remove an uncoated paper label from a fountain pen ink bottle.

      Glad to hear it! Were you trying to preserve the label?
