Use Rubber Bands To Mark Bottles And Party Drinks

While a plastic cup might lend itself to a permanent marker label, beer bottles aren't so easily marked up — glass, dark, small labels, not a Sharpie-friendly zone. Rubber bands, however, are down right drink-agnostic.

Over at the home-centric blog Re-Nest they had the problem of the lost wine glass licked — as have we here at Lifehacker with LED wine charms. We've eve highlighted how you can use colourful window markers to tag party glassware. Beer bottles, on the other hand, are a bit tougher. At Re-Nest they found a perfect solution, colourful rubber bands. They write:

If you're like us, you have a stash of rubber bands left over from heads of broccoli, bunches of asparagus, and the newspaper. We're lucky that we have an assortment of colors: pink, blue, green, purple, tan, white. They make perfect beer identification bands, as long as you don't have a huge party (although then you might be serving more than one kind of beer, which also helps). And they're free!

If you don't have the stomach for that much broccoli you could always head over to your local office supply store and buy a big pack of colourful rubber bands. We're fairly confident your beer will be just as happy without the snug embrace of a produce band.

Party Tip: Use Rubber Bands to Mark Your Beer Bottles [Re-Nest]


    I'm confused. Why would I want to label wine, beer or other drink bottles at a party? They all usually come with brand labels attached, what is the purpose of sharpie marking or rubber bands? Is the idea that people don't share their booze at parties? What an odd idea!

    I'm going to assume that this is just another American cultural peculiarity and ignore it.

      here here.

    I use scissors to cut the wrist sections off holed rubber gloves into strips. This makes large sized rubber bands to keep big stuff like extension cords coiled neatly.

    After a few drinks, are you going to remember that your drinks were with Blue or Green rubber bands?

    hahaha, my friends are way to slack to adhere to such rules..
