[Drosophila] washable markers for glass vials/bottles

We are using glass vials and bottles for our fly stocks but are having trouble finding a marker permanent enough to be reliable for labeling vials/bottles but that also comes off in the dishwasher. Does anyone have any recommendations about brands/colours of markers, and/or techniques for easy removal (we wash hundreds of vials/week and cannot be wiping the marker off each vial using alcohol).

Many thanks!
