Sandy T. in Greenfield, Wis., writes: I want to make a serving tray using the labels off various wine bottles that we open when we have guests over for an evening. I’ve tried soaking the bottles overnight, but nothing seems to be working. How do I get those labels off without tearing them?

Heloise says: Try this: Fill the bottle with boiling water and wait 15-20 minutes while the heat loosens the glue that holds the label onto the bottle, and carefully peel off the label.
