One More PCB Dishwasher Question

Write down a description of where each of the labels are located on the
board, and carefully remove those labels for re-attachment after cleaning.

This is what I do to preserve labels. Usually the label adhesive on older
products is shot anyway - and the labels need to be attached again after
just minimal handling.
