How Did You Get Labels OFF Med Bottles?

I tried tearing them off and soaking. They put the label on then tape It down making it hard to remove.

  • orange oil let it soak on it a little bit and it will remove the glue too...it will loosen the glue to where you just have to wipe

  • Put hot water in the bottle and let it sit, after a little bit the hot water will soften the glue so you can tear it off easily.

  • Or you can take your prescription bottles back to the pharmacy and they can shred it for you. Our pharmacy has a company that picks up all our private info, including bottles and shreds it in a huge truck on the spot.

  • Oil will take the label of of any bottle. I generally use baby oil, but cooking oil will work too.

  • Some do but most are taped down, trying to get rid of so many empty bottles. Need a liquid that will make them fall off.  Would like them off in one piece then I will dry, then shred them.
