Labeling Mason Jars

What is the best way to label mason jars so that when I wash the jars the label does not come off? Also, I'd prefer labels that aren't too costly and, if possible, eco-friendly. Any ideas?

I've used permanent marker on the lids. After it dries, it seems to stay pretty well. I've been using this method for many years, eco-friendly and inexpensive. Hope this helps.

I use the same method as Darlene...A black Sharpy permanent marker. I write on the lid the contents and the date that I canned it. That way when you use the product and wash the jar, you don't have to change or redo the label. And the lid is only used once for canning.
