Wow, these Liquid Chalkers are the bomb! What are they, you say? They are exactly what they are named: Liquid Chalks. Have you ever used liquid chalks before? If not, you are missing something. Use the Liquid Chalks to write notes to your husband or children, friends or relatives on any non-porous surface and save the paper. A huge thank you goes to the Paper and Twine Company for providing the Liquid Chalkers for the purpose of this review.
Boost Your Creativity with Liquid Chalkers
To put my husband at ease, whenever I need to run an errand while my husband is taking a nap, I write him a note to let him know what errands I intend to run and where I intend to go. Finding scrap paper around my house to write this note is no problem at all, but since I am attempting to de-clutter my home of all unnecessary paperwork, I would rather not have all that extra paper accumulating in my office. I would prefer to use a product that will serve the same purpose but without the added mess. Liquid Chalkers is just such a product.
Now, having never used any liquid chalk products before, I was a bit skeptical, but I was totally amazed how easy the Liquid Chalkers are to use. Simply shake the chalker for a few seconds, remove the cap¸ turn the chalker upside down and depress the 6 mm chisel tip until it fills with ink. This process only takes about 30-45 seconds before your chalker is ready for the initial use.
The set itself consists of 8 vibrantly colored nontoxic liquid chalkers: Green, Purple, Red, Orange, Pink, Yellow, Blue, and White. The ink in the chalkers flows smoothly and you can vary the width of your writing by turning the chalker itself either one quarter turn to one half turn for wider lettering. The ink dries quickly and without smearing.
You do, however, need to follow a few easy instructions to get the maximum benefit from this product. You need to know that some liquid chalks can be a bit finicky when they are used on different chalkboards and chalkboard paint. Although it works well on some, the liquid chalks do not wipe off other surfaces at all. Consequently, the company suggests that you test a small area of the surface you wish to use first.
I have included a few tips for using your Liquid Markers:
- Be creative with the surfaces that you use, making sure that your children are aware of the surfaces where they can and cannot use the chalkers;
- Test the area before using the Liquid Chalkers. Using the Liquid Chalkers on some porous (absorbent) areas will not be easily removed. It is best to use the Liquid Markers on non-porous surfaces; and
- If the Liquid Chalkers are accidently used on a porous surface, the use of the Mr. Clean Magic Markers may help with the removal process.
The dustless Liquid Chalkers are perfect to use on Mirrors, Windows, Glass tables, Art projects, Ceramics, Chalkboards, Plastics, Laminated Desks, Metal, Whiteboards or any other sealed surface – more particularly, on any surface that is not porous (absorbent). Areas such as wood, walls and some chalkboards do not work well when the Liquid Chalkers are applied, as they can become permanent or difficult to remove. The Liquid Chalkers are easily removed with a tissue or wet cloth.
Write words of wisdom on the mirror in your child’s room, or words of encouragement. You can leave a message to your significant other expressing your love or affection, or leave a “Honey Do” list for them. Use the Liquid Chalkers in your kitchen to jot down items you need from the grocery store. Years ago, I posted a picture of a young lady who had beautiful long hair to my bathroom mirror as an incentive to accomplish a goal. At that time, I wanted to let my hair grow to that length and kept the picture on the mirror until my hair reached the desired length. Using the same principle, you can simply jot a reminder for yourself and merely remove it once you accomplish that goal.
Keep several of the Liquid Chalkers in every room in the house, so when an idea strikes your fancy, you won’t have to be distracted running into another room to find a chalker to record it. Use the Liquid Chalkers on the rear view mirror in your car as a reminder to replace the tags on your car. I could go on and on, but I think you get the picture of the endless uses for the Liquid Chalkers.
