Hello all, I did a quick check using the search tool and didn't find any threads that stood out on label glue. Key being something that stick decently to a bottle holds up well when the bottle sweats, but washes off easily when it's time to toss back in a case for another brew.

Thanks in advance.

I don't have any personal experience, but I think some folks use milk.

I've been using a glue stick lately. I'm not sure how easily the lables will come off though. Milk didn't work great for me, but it's possible I was doing it wrong. If I put too much on it would make the ink bleed (inkjet printer) If I put too little on the lables would come off the bottle.

Milk Milk Milk

If you want it to stick just 'a little bit better' put a dash of corn starch in it.
Brush it on...Your golden

Elmers glue stick here. I just put it on all the edges and a dot in the center. Comes off with a rinse and a rub.

Thanks for the info guys. I'm going to give the milk a try and see how that works. Will fall back on a glue stick if I don't get enough adhesion.

I only use milk on mine. However, I print on a heavier paper and print on our big laser printer at my office so I don't have the bleeding problems as seen by some with ink jet printers.

I use only milk as well, the key is to use laserjet printing, since there is nothing to bleed. Toner vs ink.

Milk just be sure to use heavier paper and not inkjet ink. I go to the copy store and they do it automatically.

I've heard that a light coat or two of clear paint can help the inkjet stop bleeding. But I have a color laser at work, so I'd use that. You might be able to get some color copies run off at a printing outfit for a few dollars too if you don't have access to a color laser.

But milk seems to be common agent. Just brush some whole milk on the back and place on the bottle. Let dry.
