one of these thingsis not like the other

Notice how different the labels are on my bottles?

I actually used the same inkjet clear labels for both, but the "scrub" bottle went through a special treatment first. Turns out that the layer that is added to the labels to make the inkjet ink stick to them (but not make them water resistant) is *removable*!

Using some of my homemade cleaner & a scrubby sponge, I was able to get rid of that stuff & then ran the labels through my laser printer, thus making water resistant, clear labels!

Ok, so they aren't perfect, but they look pretty damn cool. I know that they will eventually need to be replaced, but by then I might even own a Silhouette and would be able to make something really cool.

By the way, if you are wondering and don't already know, the font is Pharmacy, which is easily down-loadable & although you can't see them, I typed the recipes on the back in good ol' Century Gothic- easy to read and a nice clean contrast to Pharmacy.

I'll get the cleaning recipes up soon...

spin the bottle

As promised, here's the post about the new spray bottles!

But first, let me refresh your memory regarding the old ones. They looked really pretty on line, they were the right price, they shipped quickly, they were crap.

New bottles, little bit more expensive, packed amazingly well and totally AWESOME!

Here's one of the new bottles & one of the old ones: (I told you it was yellow!)

I realized that I not only liked the way the black sprayers looked better, I liked how they feel in my hand better as well. Luckily, they are the same size as the sliver ones! I just switched the straws inside and swapped them out:Notice how crushed the blue bottle is? That's what happened *every time* I sprayed with them!:
I went ahead and picked up some of the Dollar Tree bottles as well and although they are a little more shiny than the big ones, along with an old stainless salt shaker, they all look super cool together.

I have another part of this little project that I'm really close to being able to post about, but not quite, so I'll leave you in suspense...
(I know it's almost killing you)
