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 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.
