Default Removing Labels from Food-Grade Buckets?



Advertise Here

I have not seen a thread on this...

Does anyone know an easy way to remove paper lables from 5 gallon/3 gallon buckets? I have gotten a bunch from a local bakery. I would like to take the labels off so I can put my own labels on to show what is in the buckets, printed out and put in sheet protectors.

Thanks all

Seems like a lot of work to remove something that really doesn't need removed. I find that my labels actually stick better to their labels than they do to the plastic bucket itself, so for me, their label is a bonus.

I removed of a couple of mine. Fill your tub with hot water a few inches.....lay the label face side down to soften it and the glue.....it'll come off easy. But most I've left the labels on. Not worth the hassel. I just wrote what's in them on the "clean" side with a sharpie. Easy. Some of my buckets....

I use to work at this place that used a product called Unisolve. This stuff was ridiculously fantastic. It would take any sticker/label off literally within seconds. You would squirt it on and the glue would just liquify and the label roll right off half the time.
