Use name tags:
- On the glasses case
- On the mobile phone
- On towels, hairbrush, soap, bag, toiletry bag, and other items you bring to the swimming pool or gym
- On books (both if you lend them to others or bring your books on a trip)
- In clothes – especially clothes you take off elsewhere. For example, sweaters, cardigans, jackets, gloves, or hats.
- The bag with knitting
- Your chargers
- Pill box, lip balm, nasal spray
You can also get small stickers with space for name and address, which you can put on your belongings.
Names in clothes are indispensable in a nursing home
Have you or someone you love reached the point in life where the next home is a nursing home? Then you can’t avoid putting names in the clothes. Many places require names on belongings. It helps the staff to place things in the right place after washing – and if you or your close relative forgets their things in the common area.
Our experience is that most nursing homes wash clothes at high temperatures. Therefore, it may be wise to choose name labels that can be ironed onto the clothes. Our iron-on labels can withstand washing at both 60 and 90 degrees. If you don’t want to iron names onto all your clothes, you can use iron-on labels in underpants, undershirts, and socks. For the rest of the clothes, you can use name tags.
In some nursing homes, the room number should be on the clothes. It’s entirely up to you what should be on the name labels when you order.
