Can I use Washi tape to make freezer labels?

Madeline616April 9, 2013

Hello,

X-posting, not sure where this question belongs...

I'm popping over from the kitchen forum for the first time. Happy to have discovered this forum!

Just learned about Washi tape and thought it would be great for freezer labels (the labels we place on frozen in glass Pyrex dishes and Tupperware containers).

Has anyone used Washi tape for this purpose? I'd like to order some online, but wanted to know whether it "sticks" in the freezer environment before making the purchase.

Why don't you just freezer tape. That is what I used when I had a freezer. I have never heard of washi tape.

Hi Emma,

Have been using freezer tape for years. Just learned about Washi tape and thought it'd be a fun change from plain freezer tape, and a fun way to color-code frozen foods.

I'm not crafty, so I have to use these pretty, crafty things in practical ways :)

Probably not - most tapes do not have adhesive that will stay sticky in cold temperatures.

Try labelling a few things with the tape and with normal freezer tape or cheap tan masking tape (what I use).

See what happens.

I just use masking tape.
Since the OP wants color-coded... try different colored Sharpies!

Washi tape is really expensive compared to freezer tape.

How pretty do you need your freezer to be?

Like LuAnn, I use masking tape. Works great, cheap and does not fall off until you peel it off, and that's easy.
