The other day I wanted to remove my name and numbers from an empty pill bottle before putting in the recycle bin. I was in a hurry and didn't have time to soak the label off, so I grabbed my vegetable peeler and gave it a couple of swipes, enough to remove all the personal information. Worked like a charm.
I posted earlier this year and perhaps you could try this. Put water in the pill bottle and put it in the microwave for a few minutes to get the water hot. This will loosen the label and it will peel right off. Nothing else needed. Empty the water out before trying to remove the label so you dont' get burned with the hot water.
In my jurisdiction, recycling prescription bottles is not allowed. Not exactly sure why, might be the privacy issue brought up here, who knows?
Hi mine usually just peels off. However will try peeler when I have a problem. Thanks again
Thanks for the suggestion! I've been trying to figure out a way to quickly remove my personal information so the whole neighborhood doesn't know what meds I take. This worked like a charm, off to the recycling bin.
