Good. Actually when applying any type of dot, whether lock dot, or even a 
Braille label it is advisable to thoroughly clean the plastic surface with 
rubbing alcohol before applying it. I have labels on my oven that have 
survived for years. Of course eventually they do come off. But the alcohol 
cleans off any residual oils and helps the glueadhere and stay adhered.
