Hey all I have decided to reuse the bottles form absolut vodka to store oils. they are very nice looking and have a nice silver cap. I have one problem though. I need to take off the lettering and place my own labels on it. Does anyone know of anything I can use to remove the lettering?

 These letters are engraved like into the bottle. Anyone here that drinks the stuff  knows what I mean. Please help because I have bought two botles of this thing it cost me around $13. It wasn't bad tasting but I fiqured I drink anyways and as long as I could use the bottle for my purposes afterwards it's all good.

You won't be able to remove the etching, but you could etch a panel over it (you can buy etching fluid/spray -it's not that expensive) so you don't see the original word, just a rectangular etched panel. You could then paint on it or put your label over it, or decorate another way too if you wanted to.

If you're not experienced with a dremel, it's actually quite difficult (at least I can't etch/engrave)  Roll Eyes Grin

My etching spray is made by Plastikote.
