Step 1: Before

So this is what it will look like when you spill liquid on a label with ink and trying to rub it out.

Step 2: After

So this is what it will look like with wax spread on the label.

Sorry for the dirtyness of my label, this is due to dirty candle.

Warning: This will not rub out the ink, I used another label stuck on it

    Hi - I always use packing tape but kinda like this idea as much - no one in our house is gonna nick a candle but you can becha life when ya want some, some bugger has used the tape.
    Will keep this in mind.
    Good job - simple but effective.

    I just put clear packing tape over the label. Laser printing is not terribly affected by water either. It is melted plastic to begin with.
