Liquid Chalkers!

Hi Neighbors!

How many of you have ever heard of Liquid Chalk?  I honestly had not heard much.  Then I received some for review.  This Liquid Chalkers, from Paper and Twine, arrived right before we left on our trip for Louisville, so the girls decided to surprise their brothers the day we left.

We headed out on a Sunday after church.  we all went to lunch together and then the girls were leaving with us and the boys were headed home.  So... The girls thought this would be the perfect time to try out our new Liquid Chalk Markers.  While we went in the restaurant they decorated the boy's truck windows.  Needless to say, when lunch was over they wanted to see their reaction.  The boys were laughing and quickly removed all writing from their windows.

Now, I tell you this, so you will see from the pictures how well it goes on, and then to let you know how easily it came off.  They just grabbed a rag from the truck and wiped it right off.  They didn't have to scrub or get it wet.  Easy!

Then they decided to decorate the suburban for our trip.  I think they really had fun! Just imagine what you could do with these Liquid Chalk markers.  Birthdays, weddings, etc.

From Liquid Chalkers:

Keep a few sets of markers throughout the house in different rooms and use them to communicate to the rest of the family as you're walking past.
Sounds simple right? It is simple in principle but as we used it more and more, we couldn't believe the changes. There's a few tips that you need to know though when doing this:
  1. Be inventive with surfaces but make sure you educate your kids with what they can and cannot write on.
  2. You *must* test surfaces before you write all over them. Liquid Chalkers wipe off super easily from most non-porous surfaces but don't wipe off very well from porous ones. This means that you are looking for surfaces that don't absorb things through them. If you have a chalkboard which you want to use this on, you need to absolutely test it on a small area first. Some chalkboards are made by the manufacturer putting chalkboard paint over quite porous wood. Other chalkboards are made by them putting the chalkboard paint on non-porous surfaces such as plastic, ceramic, glass or metal.
  3. If you or the kids do accidentally write on something porous and can't easily get the liquid chalkers off, many people have had very good success with Mr Clean Magic Erasers which are an inexpensive specific kind of cleaning sponge that is used with water and can be found at your local supermarket or on Amazon. I'm sure you probably won't need them as the liquid chalkers wipe off most things really easily but it's always good to be prepared with more information!

You can also use the Liquid Chalk around the home.  Be sure to always test your writing surface first to make sure it is not too porous for the Liquid Chalk.  Most chalkboards, white boards, mirrors, windows, glass tables, even laminated desks or metal can be used.  If the surface is too porous there is a chance you will have trouble removing the Liquid Chalk.  You can leave special messages to your family, leave notes about chores that need done, write down work schedules, the uses are many.   Do make sure your children know what they can write on.

This was on the hotel bathroom mirror.

Be sure to try some of this Liquid Chalkers the next time you are looking for a way to decorate a car, or if you just want a way to leave messages for each other around the home.  I am actually thinking of decorating our storm door for fall using the Liquid Chalk Markers!

See you soon neighbors, At the Fence!
