Digit-Eyes labels can easily be made waterproof!
Vera would like Davey to help with the laundry. And Davey would
like to know which pair of Dockers is tan and which is blue
without having to ask Vera.
How to know what is what?
- Davey buys a set of washable vinyl labels from the
- Davey gets some
safety pins and sticks them through the edges of the vinyl
labels. He could sew them down, but he does not feel
inclined to do so.
- Davey, going through his closet with Vera's assistance,
for each item, puts a pin with a label someplace
inconspicuous on the garment.
- He then scans the Digit-Eyes code in the tag with his
phone and Vera records what the item is ("this is the
silk shirt you like but costs $15 to clean" or perhaps
just "khaki Dockers")
- When he comes home and changes clothes, he simply tosses
the garments -- tags and all -- into the wash.
- When he goes to sort the laundry before it goes into the
washer and when it comes out, all he has to do is to scan
the tag and he'll know exactly what the item is
Helpful Hint: Not all items need labels
all the time. Digit-Eyes labels can be easily re-recorded.
A good example is a case where there is one set of towels for
the master bath and another one for the guest bath. When
removing the towels from the bathroom for washing, simply
temporarily attach a Digit-Eyes tag to them, record "master
bath" or "guest bath" and toss them in the
washing machine. When the towels are done and placed back
in the bath, remove the tags and save them for labeling other
Whether the labels are sewn in or pinned, closet confusion is
a thing of the past and Digit-Eyes has done its job!
