I recently crafted skin care products out of essential oils, witch hazel and other ingredients, and I tried to find a DIY label that I could remove from each bottle after it was empty. 

I realized that the wide rubber bands that come on most organic vegetables work perfectly for this application. These reusable rubber bands are easy to write on with a magic marker, and the rubber provides a much-needed grip when your hands are damp.
