I'd say the salt won't bother anything. I say this because I grew up with glass salt and pepper shakers, and one set I can remember seeing since I was very young (I'm 45 now) looks no different now than it did all those years ago. That said, I've seen many old milk bottles displayed on sites online and, as Steve says, they all seem to use white styrofoam beads.
Have you ever seen a Bordens Condensed Milk bottle? Reading your post got me to thinking about one of the old bottles I saved from the trash about 20 years ago. I had gone on a service call to repair an older womans oil furnace. Sitting on her picnic table was a ribbed, bottle embossed with an eagle and the words Bordens Concensed Milk Company. The thing was in perfect condition. As we began to leave the lady came out and I asked her about it. Her response was, "Oh, that's where I set that thing. I was headed for the trash with it the other day and got distracted and set it down. Do you want it?" My affirmative response took about a quarter of a second and I took off through the pouring rain to the back yard to get it. Over the years I have seen a few of them online, but never took the time to research it any further, until I read your post. Based on the info in the link below my bottle dates between 1900 and 1919. I've got to say I think this bottle is officially the oldest thing I own. It's amazing that a glass bottle could survive, in perfect shape, for a hundred years or more. That's just cool.....
That said check out the two sites, there is some good info on both of them.
