I just thought I'd update this. I finally got around to labeling these. I used a glue stick. It was Elmer's X-Treme, which was a little pricey, but I didn't want to go back and try something else if it didn't work. It does seem to hold well, or at least as well as milk. It failed at the cooler test though. I let it cure for 24 hours, then put it in a sink with cold water. The label fell off immediately. The paint doesn't seem the best. If you want, you can kind of scrape it off a little with with your fingernail. I think with normal use it should be fine though.

I used 100 grit sandpaper, then 400 grit, followed by 0000 steel wool. It took around 1/2 hour to do one bottle. It does look good, I'm thinking its worth MY time.
