I don't know why it's taken me eight children to finally think of permanently etching their names on individual cups. We've tried everything from assigning colors of plastic cups to names on pieces of masking tape. Now the proof cannot be washed away and has to be carefully used.
mason mugs here. And this is the brand of etching cream (Armour Etch). Ours came from the local window place (Fast Glass) but you can usually get it at craft stores or online.
Next we taped off a rectangle around each name.
The etching cream gets painted on where we want the glass to be etched. It won't etch where the stickers or tape are on the glass.
The etching is left on for only about 5 minutes. It doesn't take long at all.
Wash off the cream under running water. The etching cream is very acidic so PLEASE wear gloves. At first it won't look like the glass has been etched. But it is!
Peel off the stickers and tape. Wash the glasses again and you are done!

For the next several days I will be posting about the World Congress of Families. This year it is being held in Sydney, Australia. Remember how we helped to raise funds for Angela to attend? She is sending daily reports of the presentations, interviews she is able to have, and more. I am excited to share with you what she is experiencing. There are so many around the world - politicians, religious leaders, community organizers, trained professionals, and others - who are dedicated to defending the family. I will try to post each day's events in order so you are not reading them backwards as you scroll down. I have broken up Angela's summaries into several posts so it isn't overwhelming to see a HUGE post. Remember, if you have any questions you would like her to ask when she gives her interviews, leave them in the comments and I will pass them along to her.
