I made a batch of beer this weekend and use oxy-clean to clean my equipment. I then bottled 6 gal of wine so I rounded up 30 bottles. All needed cleaning and many still had labels. I used the 5 gals of oxy-clean solution and was amased. Most labels just floated off and the rest were easily scaped

I have never used oxy clean. Is it like a soap detergent or a bleach? I guess what I am getting at is that washing bottles with a detergent, like dish soap, is not good because it is very difficult to rinse away soap from a bottle. However, if it does not leave any type of a residue then it would probably work well for cleaning labels.

oxy-clean

Oxy-clean is a per-carbonate cleaner that cleans with oxygen. This is a type of cleaner that is use in beer making. One brand that most beer making supply houses sell is "one step" Its is a no rise cleaner that is available in laundry detergent sections of stores
