Hot Tips Tuesday: How to Revitalize a Dried Up Marker

Hey creative types…this ones for you! You know the irritation of finding the marker you need has dried up? Don’t toss it just yet. Help is on the way.

Bucket of Markers and Colored Pencils

Dip the tip of the offending marker in plain white vinegar and set it tip up to dry. After about 5 minutes or so, blot the marker, and put the cap back on securely.

Allow to sit overnight, and viola! The marker is good to go.

Not the instant gratification you might have been looking for, but a good way to save the marker for future use!
