Use window markers to identify party drink glasses

Kari's savvy party hack:

At parties and family gatherings, everyone sets their cups down and then wonders, "is that mine?" Wonder no more. I just figured out that you can use window markers on glassware. I wrote my name on one of my glasses and it came off in the dishwasher without me having to even rub it off. We'll use these for our holiday parties and family gatherings now so that people can keep track of their cup. It's more earth-friendly than throw-away cups and more germ-friendly than guessing if it's your cup or not!

This is a great hack!

This is a very good idea. You can get the kids involved in the preparation by pre-labeling.

Sharpie type markers wipe off glass w/ alcohol and dry erase markers wipe off glass with a tissue.

Great idea! Also, for a cheaper solution, just use a Sharpie and remove afterward with rubbing alcohol.

And if you like this idea, you'll probably also like to know about using kids' bath crayons to take notes in the shower when you think of "The Next Big Thing," or when you need to remember to buy more shampoo. Here's the article: http://www.tipninja.com/2008/02/take-notes-in-the-shower/
