    I have around 60 Thwaits IPA bottles to strip but they have plastic labels on them with a none water based glue.
    How do you remove the plastic label as it won't soak off, i tried to remove one and had to use a knife to scrape it off slowly :roll:
    Any ideas as i dont want to throw these away as i have so many!

    I had a bottle with a plastic label on it and I was able to peel it off in one go. I did have to ease a corner up with a sharp knife and peel slowly.
