I also have used a pressure washer to remove labels -
I used either 3/4'' or 5/8'' wooden doll rods pounded into the earth and the bottles went over them as I pressurized the labels off of them.

Yes some still needed a little assistance with acetone to remove the adhesive.

You might be able to use an old dishwasher rack ?

In this thread, I describe my bottle cradle. I also include a drawing.

As I mentioned before the labels from crush tag are great. They are intended to be moved so they peel off easily.

Overnight+ soak in oxy. Most of the front labels come off easily, the back ones are more of a pain. I use a single edge razor to cut through the foil and use a single device Decora electrical plate http://www.homedepot.com/p/Leviton-D...-00T/100669048 (Just make sure you don't get the nylon plates. They're useless as scrapers.) to scrape off those labels. Goof off and an old dish towel for stubborn residoo-doo. Oh and a green scrubbie pad. I don't like using metal on the bottles.

I was at my LHBS yesterday, picking up some supplies and a glass Carboy, when I stumbled across the Labelnator. Tried it out on some commercial bottles last night. A good soak and then scrape... Worked very well. Needed a little practice on proper use (and a few band aids for the places on my hand where I learned how NOT to hold it). But, if the blade holds up, I'd say get one.

I used to do the oven thing...and it was not the best. Leave a little bit of water in the bottle, very little. Put in microwave for 2-3 mins and labels peel off easily. Use oven mitts as bottles will be hot. Also steams the water inside and sanitizes bottles.

The way I remove labels, preheat over to 250 degrees, then put bottles in oven for 5 minutes.. labels usually come off very easy.
