We had picked up a selection of bottles to repurpose for our portable suitcase bar, and among them was this cool faceted Absolut vodka bottle. It’s got these really interesting little pyramids all over it, and we figured it would have the perfect spot to add our own “Vodka” label to as part of the project.
When we got the bottle home, however, we realized that we weren’t sure how we would remove the label… it isn’t printed on paper or sticker, it’s actually painted or silkscreened directly onto the glass.
We tried a number of things to get the label off; a Magic Eraser, a razor blade, sandpaper… nothing worked.
So we decided to try that magical substance that we buy by the gallon… white vinegar.
We let the bottle soak in a container of vinegar for about 20 minutes.
When it was most of the way gone (above) all it took was a couple of minutes a green kitchen scrubber to get it totally clean. (Affiliate link)
Once all remnants of the label were gone, I made our custom labels using my Silhouette and this cool Heavy Metal Adhesive Vinyl I found. (Affiliate links) Fonts: Chopin Script and UltraCondensedSansSerif
