Sounds like the bigger problem is the identification of what was/is in the
unlabeled bottles, or else how to dispose of them in a somewhat different
environment than most of us have.  I suspect they don't have the resources
to pitch and replace, and so need to be able to salvage.

There are certainly online sources (Aldrich, etc.) from the original
suppliers that can provide adequate data to reconstruct enough label
information to function with.  The key is the teachers knowledge of what
they have or the ability to sort it out (resources).

There may be better sprays available nowadays, but about 50 years ago,
that was a standard modus operandi.

Has anyone tried spraying shellac on the labels to better protect from
moisture induced degradation?
