I like to reuse containers such as apple sauce or spaghetti sauce bottles. Even though I recycle these items, I don’t like my pantry to look like it has a bunch of recycled bottles, so I use labels to help give them new life.
Maco dissolvable labels provide us with a cool new way to label. We can easily print on Maco labels and design the label according to our own style. No more soaking and scraping trying to get rid of sticky residue because Maco labels are dissolvable, which means less trash for our local landfills. They also work well for lunch containers that have to be washed frequently.
Why do I like the labels?
The labels are perfect for my daughter who has type 1 diabetes and has to count her carbs. I can prepare meals and snacks for her in advance and label her food containers so that she knows how many carbs she needs to count for her insulin intake.

Were there any challenges using the labels?
Yes, configuring your laser or inkjet printer for perfect labels is the greatest challenge. The label wizard in MS Word does offer a Maco option, but none of the correct templates are available because the dissolvable labels are new to their product line. The easiest way to print is to download the template I found after googling the product and size. You could try to follow the label instructions and print according to specifications for Avery 22804 in Microsoft Word. However, my label wizard (MS Word for Mac) did not have Avery 22804.
- Before you print directly onto your Maco label use a plain sheet of paper to make sure the label prints correctly, once confirmed print directly on the Maco Label. Also, make sure you click the “single label” option if you only want 1 and not an entire page if you decide to use the wizard.
- Make sure your hands are dry before you handle the label for best results.
- Lunch & snack containers
- Potluck dishes
- Storage bins
- Marking glass or metal objects
- and so much more
