One of my instructors has made it a rule that if there is a water bottle out in lab where he can see it, you get kicked out of lab. Now I know it's a hard line, but he has very few infractions of the rule after enforcing once or twice during the semester.

We are seeing a problem with students walking into the lab holding their water bottles and it is not practical for the instructor to stand at the door as they arrive because our labs run one right after the other and we rarely close the door.  At the beginning of the term during the safety presentation they are told to put them away before entering the lab but they either forget or ignore it. We already have so many signs in our labs, hallways, etc that no one pays any attention to them so I'm reluctant to add another one. Could you share what you do at your institution?
