Hand rinse will do almost as much damage to some labels as the dishwasher.
 If I wanted to preserve the labels, I would try to take them off. Before
you do any of this, make a note of what each one says and exactly where it

If they're really old, and the glue has dried out, they may come off quite
easily, with a little assistance from a scalpel blade or a thin knife, slid
under the label. If they're not quite so dried out, white spirit or label
remover may soften the glue enough for you to peel them off carefully. Try
a corner of *one* first, in case your solvent makes the ink run. Be
patient, it takes a while.
