Let's get started!

REMOVING WINE LABELS

ONCE YOU'VE SELECTED YOUR BOTTLES, FOLLOW THESE SIMPLE STEPS TO REMOVE EXISTING LABELS.

FILL a bucket, large pot or sink with cool water. Anything will do. You just need something large enough so that the existing labels are underwater when the bottle is submerged.

ADD 1/4 cup of Baking Soda to the water and stir to dissolve.  *If doing more than two bottles at a time, add 3 tablespoon per bottle

SOAK for 30 minutes. After the first 30 minutes, many labels will simply fall off in the water. We recommend testing the existing label with a razor blade to see if it will easily scrape off. Let soak another 30 minutes to an hour if you necessary. For pesky adhesive, you may need to soak the labels overnight.

Once the existing labels have started to dissolve, SCRAPE off any remaining label with a razor blade, then remove any sticky residue by scrubbing with a sponge and a drop of dish soap. If you find that the label has especially sticky residue, we recommend using a baby wipe, peanut butter, or goo gone to remove any of the extra adhesive left on the bottle.

DRY off your bottle and get ready to add your new label!
