NHC 2010 Bottle Label Ques.
« on: March 23, 2010, 05:55:25 AM »
I got my bottles packed up to send off but then I got to thinking...

I scratched out a number I had written on the cap with marker so there wouldn't be any ink labeling.  Is the large black dot on my cap now considerd a label or am I being paranoid?

Nah...they're fine.  The rules on the AHA site specifically say to use a permanent marker to cover up any markings on the cap.

You can also just swipe an alcohol swab over the cap.  That takes off any of the Sharpie markings that I write on my caps and leaves the cap looking like new.

Don't forget to use a rubberband...no taping allowed.

You'll be fine.  The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser also works wonders on any sharpie marks you may need to get rid of.
Please do not reply if your[sic] an evil alien!

Thanks guys.

Not sure why I didn't think to try alcohol (I new that stuff was good for something  ;D).  Not worth undoing my packaging at this point.  Gonna drop it off after work.

...dropped my package off at a Fedex dropoff.  It was my first time using one of those locations.  The guy took it and chucked it into a post office style drop box.... empty from the sound of the clunk at the end of the 3 foot drop.

I imagine these packages see worse.  I have my fingers crossed.
