Question Drum label removal

Those of you that have built a UDS: The drum I got for my UDS build has several labels (i.e. stickers) on it. They are impossible to remove without leaving either part of the label or the glue behind. Does the burn out take care of this or should I remove these using some other proven method. I know WD-40 works for loosening labels no jars etc. but haven't yet tried it on the drum. Looking for a tried and true method if there is one.

I know that when I want to re-use plastic or glass containers for sauce or rubs, I just put them in the sink, and let hot water run over them for a few minutes. Usually takes it right off. I know you can't put the drum in the sink, but maybe if you have a utility sink you could run a hose from it.

A good hot burn will take care of labels paint and such

Use a heat gun to warm the label then pull slowly and whatever adhesive is left behind wet a paper towel with WD-40 and it will wipe off cleanly.

Just burn it out, it will come off when the paint underneath burns off...

I had the same thing on 2 drums and the barrel burn took care of it nicely

I use a blow torch, and whatever was left I used acetone and wiped it off works great.
