    ist es spülmaschinen geeignet?
    is it good for the dishwasher?

    Das ist eine gute Frage, die ich dir leider nicht beantworten, sorry... Da wir Studenten sind, besitzen wir leider keine Spülmaschine. Wer auf Nummer sicher gehen möchte, kann Porzellanstifte benutzen. Es gibt ja inzwischen welche, die nach dem Brennen im Ofen spülmaschinenfest sind ;)

    Daniel, ich wünsche dir noch eine schöne Restwoche und liebe Grüße!

    Great idea. I'm going to give it a go for my spice jars, the stick on lables look terrible by comparison. Thanks! ALSO, what language is that, and what are in the three jars? One is obviously muesli.

    Thank you for your nice words :) It´s German. And yeah, you´re right – one is muesli ;) Zucker = sugar, Mehl = flour.

    Enjoy doing this project and have a great week :)
