Spice pots

Today’s quick project was to label our spice pots. I know them by texture and colour (sometimes smell) but Pim gets a bit more confused, and some of the new ones are too similar so I thought of a water and grease resistant way to label them.

I went to get a tube of imitation lead paste, degreased the pots with alcohol, and just wrote the names on top. In 7 different languages, (English, Dutch, Catalan, Spanish, French, and for those that I couldn’t decide for one of the previous, Latin (scientific name) & Hindi) we are multicultural here, or something.

Now, we will have to see if it is really water and grease resistant.

  1. Heh. I don’t label my kitchen containers either, and I never have a problem telling the sugar apart from the salt.

    But once my ex got it into his head that he wanted to bake shortcakes and he put in a 1/4 cup of salt instead of sugar. Oh, he was so angry!!!

    1. Heheee, you are evil ;)

      I had my pot of salt labeled “Salt Almighty” because my BF thinks I worship it, but it rubbed off with the oil… I’ll have to label it again ;)
