How can I protect/coat labels on a glass bottle and still be able to wash and drink from it safely? Answered

 I am cutting used glass soda bottles and using them as drinking glasses. I would like to keep the label on as a sort of "memory keeper". Is there any kind of sealant that I can use that is safe to put on a drinking glass and that would also go through the dish washer?

I would try acrylic spray. You can get it in clear glossy and several coats of that should protect a paper label. I would hand wash though. And respray occasionally. In non-paper labels it won't help much.

You could dip the outside in a clear epoxy. Just make sure that once it cures it's still safe to drink from.
