I have become a label whore. Nope, not designer jeans. I’m talking about the sticky variety. I’m using a different sticky name label for virtually every sippy cup, water bottle, food container and lunchbox for my two kids, and the bane of my existence has become scraping the yucky remnants off said items after putting them in the dishwasher. Luckily, the label gods have heard my cry and answered with these new dishwasher-safe labels from past CMP pick, Emily Press.

Emily Press Write Your Own Labels | Cool Mom Picks


Besides the fact that the Write Your Own waterproof labels don’t wash off and are super easy to apply, I love the fact that you don’t have to commit to one name. Write Your Own means you can switch it up and write both kid’s names on the labels. Or your phone number. Or milk or apple juice.

The self-sealing labels are also non-PVC and BPA-free which is important to me. They’ve been tested in microwaves, freezers and of course dishwashers–and they hold up amazingly from what I’ve seen so far.

For boys, there’s a pack with dinosaurs, lizards and cars. For girls, there are flowers, hearts and peace signs. Although ahem…girls like dinosaurs, lizards and cars too. It would be nice if we could stop labeling labels, you know? –Melissa
