I love old crates and have cleaned up a few. First dust it with a whisk broom to get off all the dirt so you don't create mud when you wash it. Next wash all wood parts with murphy's oil soap - don't soak the crate with water by ringing out your rag well (sponges will leave bits behind). I've always just used a damp rag on labels, but to be cautious with your great label you can treat it like wallpaper. Rub it down with white bread or buy a commercial wallpaper cleaner at the store. Good luck.
