I'm Anna Maria Knapp owner of Celebrations Wine Club, and our topic is how to remove wine labels from bottles. The traditional way of doing this, the older way of doing this is, was submerge the bottle into a worm bath ether in a sink or in a vase and wait a couple of hours maybe until the glue dissolved to some extent and the label floated off. That was not an entirely reliable label, way rather of doing the task as anyone knows whose ever tried it. We have a new and improved way that is terrifically efficient, quick and almost always, always works and that is to bake the bottle in a 350 degree oven and peal off the label, it's literally that simple. You'll notice that I've removed the foil and I did that before I put the bottle into the oven because you can never be sure what that foil is made of and you don't want it to melt in your oven and you don't want to breath the fumes that it's going to emit. The only tool I need is this mitt and a single edged razor blade. So after 15 minutes this should be very easy and in fact it is. If you just loosen an edge you can pretty much peal off the label which is what I'm doing here and at that point we affix it to the paper or what ever it is that you want to stick the label on. So we will now go after the main part of the label by loosening a corner initially and maybe the side and sort of slowly and carefully working and then lifting and this one is coming off so easily. You might think that it's a plant, but it's not actually, I just got lucky. It can be a little harder if the paper, if the paper is thin for instance you're going to have a little harder time, but in terms of loosening the label the oven is the way to go. And there you have it. The oven or rather the label as it was originally on the bottle. You've just witnessed the easiest way to remove a label from a wine bottle.
