Do you remember when you were in middle school and you had to have your mom sew name labels on your PE clothes? Do you remember the deadline for having your name on your clothes came without you actually doing it and you wrote your name on that plain white shirt with mascara to avoid losing points? Well, put down that mascara, because now you can just buy name labels from Kidecals and call it a day.
What I wouldn’t have given for easy stick-on labels for everything when I was in school. What didn’t we have to label? I’m homeschooling my son this year, but there’s still plenty to label. DVDs, books, certain toys, and clothing are all on the list. Socks may hold the record for disappearing, but coats and sweaters certainly try their best to escape every year. It’s the age old question… how on earth do we lose something so big?
When I read that Kidecals will survive the washing machine, the clothes dryer, and the top rack of the dishwasher, I had to find out for myself. There’s no way a sticky label could make it through the washing machine on breathable fabric, right? Right? Okay, so it made it through the washing machine AND dryer, but it’s impossible for the colors to not be faded out, right? Right? Okay, fine. Apparently the creators of Kidecals were in the top of their class at Hogwarts.
What about the dishwasher? I got these great chalkboard labels, and after learning that you can sharpen chalk, I can actually make them look like an adult wrote on them. I made the mistake of putting one of the labels on a mug that was bigger at the top than at the bottom, so the label wasn’t sitting right. After going through the dishwasher it was clear that the label wasn’t going to stay on. BUT! But, but, but… It remained sticky enough that I was able to put in on another container and still use it. Seriously, what are they using as an adhesive? That stuff is golden.
Some of my favorite labels are the Allergy Alert Stickers. You can stick those right on your young child’s shirts and send them off knowing that they’re waterproof and highly visible even if your child can’t vocalize or remember to tell adults that they have an allergy. I have a friend whose son is allergic to peanuts. She has the bracelet for him, but he hates wearing it. Stickers are much less bothersome.
