New Uses for Dry Erase Markers

One of the most versatile objects in your house can usually be found in your desk drawer. Though in my house, you’ll find a set of these in the kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room. What can’t we live without? Dry erase markers!

Or, keep a grocery list on the side of the refrigerator. As soon as an item is gone, add it right to your fridge list.

Beginners need a few tips doing laundry? Write cold/warm/dryer heat reminders on the machines.

Friends won’t accidentally mix-up ranch and blue cheese when the ramekins are easily marked!

Frame a blank copy of a frequently used list (grocery, chore, menu, or to-do) and write items on frame glass.  Simply erase & start over the next day or week.

Or, like 3 Garnets & 2 Sapphires suggests,  leave encouraging messages or words of gratitude!

If you’re using dry erase markers, especially throughout your home, make sure they’re safe. Friendly Dry Erase Markers are non-toxic: No Xylene, Toluene or other VOCs here

Of course all surfaces are different, we recommend testing your surface in an inconspicous area first.
