How on earth do I put names on Sistema bottles?

We use Sistema bottles for our two dc and at home it's easy to tell which bottle is which because they have their own colour bottle, but for school and clubs they really need to be identifiable. I put stickers on them and then loads of sellotape over the top which works but quickly looks disgusting after a few washes, so I bought a sharpie pen that supposedly writes on anything, but the second the bottle gets wet the sharpie just wipes off! confused Any clever tips?

we scratch the initials on side and bottom and them sharpie over the top.
when it rubs off the colour will stay in the scratch.

You could use a tag on an elastic band around the bottle neck and remove it when you wash it.

Name it Labels sell plastic labels which look nice and survive the dishwasher

I buy dishwasher safe labels from ebay. We have loads of things to label though. If it was just 2 items it wouldn't be worth it.

I used Labels4Kids. DS's name labels are still on them 6 years later!

We have a Sharpie Laundry pen that survives the dishwasher. It's meant to be for labelling clothes and being repeatedly washed, but works pretty well on bottles and lunchboxes too.

Tippex (or equivalent), write with sharpie on top, the clear nail varnish over all of it.

Read that on here.

And does work, but will wash off after a while.

We use them for everything, they stay on for years, fine in the dishwasher and washing machine.

Get a white paint pen - not totally permanent but better than a Sharpie!

Tiny me name labels survive the dishwasher well

Our name labels stay firmly attached and the bottle is invariably lost before the label looks a nothing other than lovely.

I got uniform stamps from stamptastic, wish I'd done it years ago now. Stamped all ds's plastic crockery for scout camp and it survived the dishwasher, guess it'll fade over time but it's no hardship to restamp it.

The proper stick on labels you can order from many companies are pretty good. If you have a short uncommon surname you can get one set made up as A Surname B and cut off whichever initials isn't applicable for that child.

On the sew in clothes labels, DS1 was A Dragon, DS2 was Dragon B and DD was Dragon.

We use Easy2Name stickers they stay on really well. Get the ones that stick onto clothing labels, then you can use them for more things they stick just as well as the lunchbox ones.

Wow, thank you all so much, loads of great tips smile I think I'll give the stickers a try.

Nail polish.

Easy2Name stickers have latest months on our Sistema bottles.

I put Easy2Name stickers on all DD's drinks bottles and some are still on after 18 months and don't look manky.
