The Oxiclean method is a quick and easy way to remove a label from a wine bottle. In addition, it does an excellent job of removing adhesives.
But make sure you wear a face shield and mask while working with Oxiclean because active ingredients in OxiClean are hydrogen peroxide ethoxylated alcohol which may cause redness, irritation, or pain if it comes in contact with eyes, respiratory irritation, nausea, or vomiting.
- Pour 1/4 cup of OxiClean into a bucket of warm water
- Immerse the wine bottle into the bucket.
- Let the bottle soak for 45 min.
- Then try removing the label using a sharp knife. If it still does not come out, leave it in a solution for a longer time.
- Then again, try to remove the label using a sharp knife. You may need to scrape off the remaining glue once the label comes off the bottle
If you don’t have OxiClean, mix baking soda in warm water, soak the wine bottle for 45 minutes, and then try to remove the label.

How to Apply new Label on Glass Wine Bottle?
Before applying a custom label to your wine bottle, make sure it is at room temperature.
Once you have printed your custom label, center the label over the wine bottle, you want to place the center of the label first on your glass wine bottle. Then you want to apply firm pressure to smooth it down evenly from the center to the sides.
If you get trapped bubble while applying the label, gently lift the label and smooth out the surface. Once the label is applied, leave the bottle at room temperature for a few hours for the label to settle.
