Could you imagine? All those beautiful Sharpies who ended up in garbage and could have had a second chance! How sad...

When we like to create things and draw, Sharpies .... are very very important !

And if you had known this trick before, can you imagine all the money you could have saved ?

But now that we know it, there's no way of wasting one more Sharpie ! No Sir ! And we will also show you this effective tip to make these markers last longer !

You will need :

- Rubbing alcohol

( 91% or 99% isopropyl alcohol) you can buy it in any pharmacy or on the Internet.


How to do :

1) Soak the tip of the marker in alcohol for 15 to 20 seconds

2) Replace the cap on the marker

3) Place the marker in vertical position

4) Leave the marker in this position for 1 to 2 hours before using it

5) You can use this trick as many times as you want, until there is no more ink in the marker.

6) Over time, the ink of the marker will become more and more pale, but for artists, this is not negative, on the contrary, this change will allow you to create shades of color. This trick is really amazing !!

But that's not all!!
