Markers can dry out either when they get old, or when they have been left open. In any case, dry markers are annoying, especially if your children are disappointed that they can’t use them for their art work. Instead of running out to buy new ones, try out this little technique to make them work again, for extra hours of arts and crafts! 

What you need:

  • White vinegar


  • 90% strength alcohol


1) Put the white vinegar or the alcohol in the caps of the markers.

2) Soak the tips of the markers in the caps.

3) Leave them overnight.

The next day, the markers will be ready to be used again.
