Wine label removers?

Somewhere here I saw the name of a product (and where to buy them) that allows you to rip off the wine labels more easily than the soak-and-peel method. They're like pieces of clear adhesive tape that you place over the label and then when you remove it, it takes the top layer of the label (the part with the info) off.

I've tried doing a seach, but I can't find the post.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about and where I can order them?

  1. Why not just use packing tape?

      1. Correct Alan, I have a bunch of them. It is hit or miss depending on the bottle, some come out perfect and others not so much. I currently have a success rate of about 70%.

        1. re: stevuchan

          My case was many more miss than hits. I gave up.
          And don't even think peeling off new "high tech" 100% plastic labels...

        2. I just use clear packing tape - it takes off the first layer and then I put the label in a small sketch book which allows me to then write up a few words of what I love/liked about the wine, with whom I shared it and so forth. It's an easy, fun way to keep track of wines I enjoy and I can take the book with me shopping.

          1. If you put "almost" boiling water INSIDE the bottle and cork it and then put it in a bowl
            with water and leave it alone, go to work or whatever, and come back later in the day the label will slide right off the bottle and be in perfect shape for your saving.
