#masonjars & my Dissolvable Labels from #canningandpreserves #shopletreviews #holidayshoppersgiftguide

I do a lot of canning and preserving and some of those goods I give away to friends and family. Because I want them to know what it is I canned, I put labels on the jars. I always ask that they return the jars and I always get them back with the labels still intact. Ugggghhh… I’m sure many of you know how hard it is to remove labels from jars, just imagine that x 200 or more jars which is about how many jars I can and preserve for others, each year. On occasion I do buy other types of labels that don’t stick. Like the below ones that I found on Etsy but are a little too pricey to use on all of my mason jars..

The bigger labels take a lot of elbow grease to remove. You know?

Even when I make pickles I have to label them because there are many types that I make. I don’t want anyone biting down into a pickle expecting it to be sweet pickles when in fact they are dill pickles. Pucker up.

Labels can be this extreme canners nightmare because of the amount of canning I do. Despite the headache of removing labels, I enjoy the rewards of preparing my own fresh foods.

If everyone can tell what my canned good are by looking at them, I leave the labels off. Less work = more time to spend with my family.

And along came Maco Laser/Ink Jet dissolvable labels.

D.I.S.S.O.L.V.A.B.L.E. ???

I wouldn’t joke about something like that. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to make my golden years easier. Is there?

I received a canners label bundle from Shoplet for review. I bet you didn’t know that Shoplet offers way more than just office supplies. This bundle comes with 3 different MACO labels packs as you’ll see below.

All of these labels are basically the same in how they work. The sizes and shapes are different allowing you to decide which labels work best for your mason jars. You can create a design with them and type a fancy smancy label or labels, or, if you prefer, you can write on the labels. Because I need a new printer STAT (hint to Santa), I wrote on mine to show how they work.

I’m going to start with the MACO Dissolvable Labels 1-1/2 x 2-1/2, Oval, 48/Pack, Set of 6.

There are 288 labels in each pack, talk about generous. They are the perfect size for any canning jars or even for your freezer goods. They dissolve when washed in sudsy water or even just clear water. You can wash them in the dishwasher and they will dissolve as well.

This is how they look in use, size, shape, etc.. Please note in my photos that after dissolving, the labels do not leave any type of residue. It’s as if they were never there. A canners dream come true. Each pack has a lot of labels which is awesome for this extreme canner. By extreme I mean that I can and preserve more than anyone I know. I’ve no doubt that I have many readers and followers who do the same (I’ve seen your canned goods on your sites, lol).

Next up is the MACO Laser/Ink Jet Dissolvable Labels, 2 Diameter Round, 12 label per sheet, 60 labels per pack, Set of 3. These labels are perfect to put on the top of my canned goods because they are the perfect size to go on the flats. These are my favorite labels of the three although I plan on using all of them from here on out. They are all perfect for my needs and it helps that they are affordable.

The last set of labels are the MACO Laser/Ink Jet Dissolvable Labels, white oval 8-1/2 x 11, 1 label per sheet, 5 labels per pack, Set of 3.

#masonjars & my Dissolvable Labels from  #canningandpreserves #shopletreviews #holidayshoppersgiftguide

They are a great size to write what ever you need to on the labels. As the above two are, these labels are also dissolveable. It only takes second under water to remove the labels so when your mason jars are empty and you put them up for your next batch, they will be ready to go without spending time on them trying to remove the previous labels.

    What a great product! I hate trying to peel labels off of bottles and jars when they are stuck on there with permanent glue. This will make reusing jars so much easier!

    I’ve never done canning, but it’s something I would like to learn! I always think about natural disasters or zombie apocalypse…and how I would not be very self-sufficient. Haha :)

    I’ve never tried canning. Initially I was thinkin WHY you’d want dissolvable labels but makes sense now!

    I’m awed and impressed by your canning prowess! (I’ve only done a little here and there for pet projects.) These labels sound fabulous for any sort of food storage purposes!

    Dissolvable labels? How awesome! These would be so much easier than having to peel labels off. I sometimes get so frustrated that I just buy new jars. haha

      Oh law, I’ve done that so many times myself especially if I want to make goodies for others.
