The Occasional Tip: Weatherproof Labels

This is just one of the many tips I've received from all the aunties, uncles, grandmas and grandpas, collected and stored in some dark recess of my cluttered brain. Every now and again, I find I need to dig some of this information out and use them....cobwebs and all. Some of them are quite the common knowledge and some can be just so simple. Take this one for example...
I like to label and date my raw or leftover foodstuff before keeping them in the refrigerator or freezer. And sometimes I run out of those waterproof felt pens and proper freezer labels.

So here's the tip : Just rub a white candle over the writing on your label. And that should prevent them from getting smeared.

Happy storing and freezing!


  1. Love this tip! The BF has had a block of wax collecting dust in the kitchen for quite some time, now I can put it to work!

  2. Hi again, Kita. Glad to be of help :D
