Default Those darn labels on buckets

OK friends, here is a question for the group. How in the heck do you remove the labels and leftover glue from white plastic buckets scored from the local market or deli? I have tried scraping, soaking in hot water, goo gone, rubbing alcohol soak, cooking oil, automotive brake cleaner fluid and WD 40. NONE of it worked, scraped some of the paper label off but not worth the effort if the glue is still on the bucket. Super glue has nothing on whatever they use to stick labels to these plastic containers.

Any and all suggestions are appreciated to relieve the frustration of preparing the buckets for planting. I will reward a solution that actually works with FREE Bishops Cap pepper seeds!
