Today I was in a rush and just used washing soda with a scrubber sponge, and it worked so quickly, much quicker than with the fat. Not much water, just what was on rung out sponge. I also put hot water with washing soda inside the bottle to get rid of the oily stuff inside as it held cod liver oil. I shook the bottle for a few times and it worked for that also.
I worked in the used book business for a long time. One of the things which bedeviled dealers was stickers which were put on paperback covers. Citrasolve worked, so did lavender oil. If you've got a coated paper label that's particularly tenacious, we used to lightly score the label with a razor to get the solvent to the glue. Then cover the scratches with the solvent until the label just slips off.
I like the idea of removing labels from glass a lot more than removing them from lacquered paper, seems like it should be much easier!
Finished one life quest, on to the next!
