Sledding Snowman Stocking #13

 Coming together very nicely!
Here's a random sort of question for you - I have Type 1 Diabetes, and as such, I go through lots of supplies of test strips, monitors, pump materials etc. One thing I have heaps of is empty test strip containers. The old ones I used to use were white, and the labels came off very easily. I use them for beads and needle storage. But these new black ones are impossible to get the labels off, even after soaking. Any ideas on what I could use them for rather than putting them in the rubbish? They are about 5cm high and have a diameter of about 2cm, so they are only small. I have heaps of them.
Happy Stitching,


  1. No idea what to do with the test containers, but try rubbing alcohol to remove label or nail polish remover. Love the stocking!

  2. Hi Kerrie: Try vinegar soak, maybe that will help but put it outside so the smell does not stay in your home.
    Love them Snowmen so sweet.
