The Brother P-Touch Project: Episode 1 – How Tough Are Those Labels?
We here at The Dad Jam are all about bringing you news about cool products that can help you make your life as parent easier and more organized.
So we are happy to take part in a series of adventures in getting organized with Brother P-Touch. We’ll be putting Brother P-Touch labels to the test, and using them to get organized. We’ll report back to you how we get along with the labeller and labels, and if they live up to The Dad Jam’s toughness tests.
Here, in Episode 1, we’ll put some Brother P-Touch labels through the ringer and see if they stay stuck and maintain their integrity. Then, in Episode 2, we’ll show you how we used the labels to get ourselves organized. In Episode 3, we’ll wrap it all up and let you know how the labels are holding up against everyday use.
Episode 1 began with the arrival of our Brother P-Touch Extreme Test Kit.
The test kit included: P-Touch Sample Labels, a Plexi-Glass Block, Nail Polish Remover, bleach, a brush, and a scrubber sponge.
Our mission: to see how well the label would hold up to some intense scrubbing and an abrasives.
For our first test, we subjected the “Test Zone” label on the plexi-glass block to the following abuse:
1. Nail Polish Remover
2. Intese brushing
4. More intense brushing
Here are the before, during, and after photos:
Looks like the labels were holding up well! So for the next test, we upped the ante:
2. Sponge Scrubbing
4. 5 minutes of water pouring onto the label
5. Nail Polish Remover
6. More Brushing
7. More Sponge Scrubbing
Did the label hold up? See for yourself:
As you can see, we couldn’t do anything to break these labels! The text was totally unaffected, and the labels did not come off at all!
The only thing that was damaged in this whole process, were our fingers. They were totally red from all the scrubbing and chemicals!
So there you have it. Looks like we have some really tough labels on our hands. Looking forward to using the labels to get organized, and putting them to the test in our house. Stay tuned for Episode 2!
