HOW TO REMOVE WINE LABELS
METHOD A – BAKING SODA (FOR FULL WINE BOTTLES)
An article in Popular Mechanics put several label removal methods to the test, and determined that the following is the most effective. Best of all, this method can be performed on a full bottle of wine without negatively affecting the quality of the wine.
You Will Need: A sink or bucket, baking soda, a rag, a towel (optional: steel wool)
- Soak the label portion of the wine bottle in room temperature water with 5-10 tablespoons of baking soda for 30 minutes.
- Remove the bottle from the water, and wipe the label off with a rag. If any of the label still remains, use a fingernail or steel wool to remove the rest.
- Once the bottle is clean, wipe it with a towel and allow it to completely dry and acclimiatize to room temperature before applying your new label.
METHOD B – HOT WATER (FOR EMPTY WINE BOTTLES)
If you are trying to remove labels from EMPTY bottles, simply fill them with very hot water (from the tap should be fine) and let stand for 10 minutes. In many, but not all, cases. the heat will partially melt the adhesive and allow you to peel off the label. We have found this method works particularly well for removing Stoney Creek labels. If you have difficulty removing your labels using this method, please try Method A – Baking Soda
HOW TO APPLY WINE LABELS
Before you apply a custom label to your wine bottle, make sure that the bottle is completely clean, dry, free of residue, and at room temperature. Once your bottle is ready, follow the steps below to apply your label:
- To remove your custom wine label from the backing paper, peel back the BACKING at a tight angle in one corner. This should cause the corner to lift up, allowing the label to be slowly peeled off without damage.
- Lay the bottle down on a firm surface that will prevent the bottle from rolling, such as on your lap, or on an egg carton.
- Center the label over the bottle. Using the seam of the bottle as a guide can help with this.
- Place the center of the label onto the bottle first, using firm pressure to smooth it down evenly from the center out.
- Once the label is applied, leave the bottle at room temperature for 24 hours to allow the adhesive to set.
