I use a knife to remove labels. I have my "favorite knife" that I
like to use, it's just a small one, almost like a paring knife.
Goo Gone is my go to solvent for removing the sticky residue left
behind once I peel off a label and sometimes I even put some Goo Gone
on the label itself to soften it before I use my knife. Just be
careful of getting the paper cover too wet.
