Default Marker for HDPE spray bottle?

What to use for permanent writing on a high-density polyethelene (HDPE) spray bottle? Sharpies wear off right away, even with water-based solutions inside.

And any marker for HDPE that will remain permanent if isopropyl alcohol gets on it?

Thanks.

Have you tried Sharpie "industrial"?

Although it does last longer than regular Sharpie, it does wear if handled a lot. I write on tape, lasts the life of said tape.

Not IPA proof. Nail polish?

I color code with tape. Blue for pure water, green for ferts and red for pesticides and such. I write the contents on the tape which makes changing the contents a bit neater.

Sharpie has recently come out with a new ink that's supposed to be even more durable, but I don't recall the name. I use my Brother P-touch labels.
