Brother P-Touch Label Test

I was chosen by Mom Central to participate in a group review of the Brother P-Touch labeling system. I received this test kit including a P-touch label sample affixed to a plexi-glass bock, nail polish remover, bleach with brush, and scrubber sponge.

I was highly skeptical that the label sample could withstand any of these chemicals, but I put it to the test!

First I tried dousing the label with fingernail polish remover, as I thought that would definitely eat away at least at the corners of the label and make them peel up, but the label held up even under vigorous scrubbing.

Next I tried scrubbing with the rough side of the sponge…nothing! I thought for sure the edges would peel, but I could not even get it up with my fingernail.

Next I tried scrubbing with Clorox and again, nothing!

Finally I rinsed the whole thing off in water and scrubbed some more, and as you can see, the label still looks brand new!

I bought an inexpensive label maker a while ago and I’ve had to reinforce all my labels with Scotch tape. I do not think that will be necessary with the Brother P-Touch! The labels are made from a tough laminated material that has withstood these chemicals and scrubbing. I don’t typically spill bleach on my labels, so I think they’ll be pretty long lasting under regular circumstances.

I’ll be posting two more times about reorganizing my craft room with the help of the Brother P-Touch and IKEA. I have big plans for organizing and labeling everything so stay tuned!

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Brother P-Touch and received a product and gift card to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate.

I found a link that has this priced at $24.95 and free shipping. The lowest I have seen it is $40 in local stores!
