How about paper tags with wire attachments like we use on gas tanks and 
eyewashes around the neck of the bottle?  Won't help with the current 
problem, but may prevent it from happening in the future.

I included a section on MSDS and Chemical Hygiene, and on the following day I was given written questions by the "adjun" (teachers).  Although only a minor part of my workshop was on chemical hygiene, every question but one dealt with either chemical hygiene issues or green chemistry.

So, I am asking if anyone has any web based (or other) protocols for dealing with unlabeled containers that I could share.  I would really appreciate any input as these are great people whom I believe have far greater problems than we do when it come to chemical hygiene issues and they do care.
