Fix a dried out Sharpie or marker. Use for any sharpie or marker. For a non-permanent marker follow the same directions below, replacing alcohol with water. 1. Pour rubbing alcohol into a small container. 2. Dip the tip of your sharpie/marking tool into the rubbing alcohol. Hold submerged for a minute. 3. Put the cap back on to the sharpie and let it sit for 15 minutes. 4. This should restore your marker to full use again.
