Idea Exchange: Sometimes you can judge a bottle by its wrapping

Sometimes you can judge a bottle by its wrapping

We have always had trouble using ink to label the plastic bottles in our exam rooms and lab areas (e.g. alcohol, peroxide, lubricant). The writing would smear every time the bottles got wet. So now we color-code the bottles by wrapping them in Vetrap (3M). For example, pink wrap means alcohol and red wrap indicates peroxide. In addition, we can write on the Vetrap with a marker and it doesn't smear.
