Default Removing very sticky flue residue left from the label of a glassbottle

could explain my niece...

I've also had good results with full strength liquid detergent and a
stainless steel scouring pad - the glass jars were not noticeably

Yes, I often just soak glass bottles in the dishwater
and if all the glue doesn't come off I just scour with
Brillo pad. Doesn't hurt glass at all, although I'd probably
not use it on fine crystal, but then you probably don't have
labels glued on your fine crystal. ;-)
