All of the products available in our range have been designed to work like a whiteboard, just a much more beautiful version.
Whether you’ve purchased a framed planner or one of magnets, you can use a whiteboard marker on the surface. The downside of these markers is that they smudge very easily on glass and leave an ink residue that can usually only be cleaned with special whiteboard cleaner.
When we stumbled upon liquid chalk, we were absolutely ecstatic that we’d found the perfect marker for our products. If you’ve ever used a paint pen, you’ll be familiar with how these work.
Tips to get started
- First off, give the marker a really good shake to get the chalk moving;
- Remove the cap and you’ll notice that the nib of the marker is white and doesn’t seem to be the colour you thought it was – trust me, it’ll work;
- Now you need to load the nib with chalk – to do this use your planner or a spare piece of paper. Press the marker repeatedly onto the surface and you will see the ink start to load in the nib. Be patient, this can take a while to get the ink going.
- Once the ink has fully filled the nib, you’re ready to start writing. Yay!
- Shake your marker prior to each use and reload the nib to ensure you get a great result.
Removing liquid chalk
To remove liquid chalk, simply wipe over with a damp cloth. We like to use windex to clean our glass surfaces. You can also use a little household cleanser if there is stubborn chalk residue on some surfaces.
Please note that we do not recommend the use of abrasive cleaners or cloths, particularly on our magnetic products.
Here’s a quick clip that shows our magnetic organisers being cleaned. It gets messy, but keep going and it’ll look awesome.
- The felt nibs can be removed and reversed. If the nibs become clogged they can be removed and washed in clean water, dried and replaced.
- Store pens on their side or upright with the cap to the top & make sure the cap is on tight.
Liquid chalk writes on so many things;
- white goods
