I have some great ideas on how to use your chalk markers! My name is Patrick and I just discovered chalk markers recently. Here’s what I found out.
The Benefits of Chalk Markers
Chalk markers are ideal for writing on chalkboards or any other surface that is slightly glossy and non-absorbent. They are easier to use than normal chalk because they are a lot like marker pens. When you are using normal chalk, you are essentially holding the substance that you are writing with, and some of the chalk dust may come off on your hands. When you are writing there is some risk that you may break the chalk, leaving dust that must be cleaned up. In addition, it is sometimes hard to get the right amount of pressure to create even lines. As you get towards the end of the stick of chalk, it becomes difficult to hold and you will eventually end up throwing away the stick, wasting a lot of chalk.
Chalk pens do not have any of those problems – they are just like in marker pens, but with chalk inside them. They have a ‘nib’ so you will always be writing with a point that is the same size and shape, so your handwriting (or your drawing) will always be consistent, and you will be able to color in large areas neatly and smoothly.
Most of these markers are non-toxic. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you should start eating the chalk inside them, but it does mean that if a child starts playing with them while you have your back turned they are unlikely to make themselves seriously ill. The chalk is held in a suspension, which means that it does not puff up and leave clouds of dust everywhere when you write.
Removing chalk from a chalk board, glass window or sign is easy to do with a damp sponge. Most high quality chalk markers are slightly splash resistant, so if you have a chalk sign that you leave outside your store it should be able to withstand a little light rain. However, if you rub the chalk with a damp cloth or sponge it should come up straight away so you can erase the contents of the sign and replace them whenever you need to update your special offers, dish of the day, or funny marketing slogans.
The one downside of chalk markers is that they tend to dry out over time if they are not used. You can stop the markers from clogging up by shaking them before using them, and by always replacing the lids when the markers are not in use.

Kitchen clutter can be difficult to deal with, but one great way to get it under control is to use chalkboard labels and chalk markers. These handy labels are great for labeling jars and canisters attractively and easily. Select the shape and design of label you want and simply fill it out with a good looking, easy to use chalk marker.
There are lots of different designs in chalkboard labels. Choose from checkerboard designs, plaque shapes and more. They are excellent for organizing your own kitchen shelves or creating unique gifts of jams, jellies and so on.
If you are especially artistic, you can even make pictures on larger chalkboard labels to decorate your kitchen cabinets and other areas in your kitchen. The markers come in lots of colors, so they are excellent for afternoon art projects around the kitchen table.
One really great thing about these labels is that you can wash the writing off the label and reuse it. This means you can change the contents of jars and containers as often as you like. You can reorganize as you wish. Chalk markers are completely washable. They are also non-toxic, so they can safely be used around food.
When you want to change a label entirely, chalkboard labels just pull right off without leaving a mess. Very often, you can use the same label again on a different container. All in all chalkboard labels provide great value because they are inexpensive to purchase in the first place and then they can be reused in many ways.
Using chalkboard labels and chalk markers to organize and decorate your kitchen is fun, creative, practical and affordable. In a world where almost everything seems overpriced and temporary, they are a welcome change. Why not get your kitchen organized today?
