For what its worth...I buy pre-glued labels. All thats needed to remove them is soak them overnight and they come right off.

This is exactly the problem that keeps me from using labels except on give aways.

Ive heard that milk will hold a label on, just apply it with a paint brush, and the label will come right off in water. I havent tried it though.

Rubber cement works really well. It sticks but it doesn't stick a lot. Its really easy to peel it off.

Elmers Glue in stick form. I use a box around the edge of the label and then a X in the middle. Comes right off with a bit of a soak in water
