    Waterproof labels for bottles, etc

    I have to label my daughter's bottles for daycare and I run them thru the dishwasher. I'm wondering if you make your own waterproof labels and if so how?

    Or do you buy them from someone?

    I've been using medical tape and writing her name on it and removing it before it goes in the dishwasher and it;s a pain.

    I still use masking tape, so I guess I'm not much help!!! We also have to write the date on it.

    Now, she just pulls the tape off before we even get to "school." (How clever!)

    Sorry!!!

    would plain old sharpie survive the dishwasher?

    we used to label things in the lab with sharpie and then cover the sharpie with scotch tape, to keep it from rubbing off, but that was for test tubes in the freezer. I dunno if that would survive the harsh environment of a dishwasher!!!

    I use plain old Sharpies to write on my recycled "tupperware" (ie, old yogurt containers and the like) -- stuff like "enchilada sauce", "pesto," etc. Usually it survives 2-3 washes in the dishwasher, and then I have to write over it again.

    I've done this for water bottles. Use regular paper and what ever kind of pen you want. Go to Wal Mart, Target, Office Depot etc and get some self adhesive laminating sheets. Laminate the top of the label. Then run the lable through a Xyron machine. This works really well and is pretty durable. Hope this helps.

    Yeah, I found that sharpie lasted about 2 washes. That was my first thought too.

    I use a P-Touch labeler from Brother (about $25 from Staples) on baking-supply jars. I've washed them a few times without them coming off.

    Using medical tape is a good idea but why wasting time on removing it again and again before going in dishwasher. Find online label manufacturing company that provide any kind of labels such one best company is ''Etiquette systems".
