Label paper either comes off too easily or too hard... Milk or glue sticks both rinse off easily with warm water. For me, the advantage of milk over glue sticks is that it's quicker and less mess. It takes a second to dunk a label in milk and slap it on, vs 5 seconds to trace around the edges with a glue stick (not to mention having to deal with glue getting on the surface below the label and making a general mess of things). If you could find some sort of water soluble spray adhesive, then that would really be ideal...
Milk labels are actually pretty impressive when I've used them. You couldn't peel them off if you wanted to, until you run them under hot water for 15 seconds, then they come off on their own. They deal with bottle sweat pretty well too, although if the bottle gets sweaty and sits for a long time you could probably peel them off (but they don't fall off on their own from sweat).
