Have you tried steam?
Fill inside plastic bottle with really hot water and let sit for a few minutes. The glue will loosen and the label can be peeled off effortlessly. If really tough- retry and let sit a little longer. I use this method all the time and 99% of labels will come off with little effort.
Soaking a label with white vinegar usually will loosen the glue.
Use your hairdryer, it will soften the glue without hurting the label. Just start lifting from one corner slowly as the glue melts.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to remove a label from a hot sauce bottle? The only problem is I do not want to ruin the label. I want to scan the label to use as wedding favors.
