Labeling plastic containers for freezer storage
What do you use to label plastic containers in your freezer, to keep track of what and especially when you froze the contents? I've had trouble with felt pens (Sharpies and similar) and with adhesive file labels. Suggestions?
I freeze in glass most of the time. Use masking tape and sharpie.
When I use zip locks for dry items, I have started to write on a piece if paper and stick it inside the package. I can write notes on the paper too. It lets me reuse the zip locks neatly :)
Picked up 3/4 rolls of neon colored masking tape (about 1/2" wide) for next to nothing at a yard sale. Sharpie works well and tape peels off easily. That way don't end up with containers with previouscontents crossed out on actual container lids.
Many thanks to all. I guess I wrongly assumed that if file labels wouldn't stick, then neither would masking tape.
But I could never get a Sharpie or grease pencil to write or remain on our plastic containers. Mysteries never cease.
