Traderspoint Creamery Yogurt Bottles: Removing the label

The Traderspoint Creamery yogurt comes in a bottle sturdy enough to use in third world housing.  Since I’ve paid to have these heavy bottles shipped to my grocery store, I would like to get some additional use out of them.  However, the label glue is not removable.

The Clean Washington Center has a page on the challenges of washing bottles and removing their labels. Pressure applied (sticky) labels are cheaper than glued on labels, but make it impossible to get the gunk of the bottle.

Right now, the only solution I can see is either using some powerful solvent, fire,  thermonuclear charge or applying a new paper sticker over the glue, since water and soap sure aren’t going to get the glue off.
