Will the Sharpie wash off?
That’s always the question we get asked when our guests come for dinner, as we pull out the Sharpie markers and start writing their names on glasses.
We’ve done it for years. Instead of the annoying wine charms (sorry, but some really are a pain to get on and off of the glasses), we’ve resorted to using Sharpie markers to identify each person’s glass.
Use different colors.
For holidays (like Valentine’s Day) why not create your own festivity?
Glasses will never get mixed among your guests.
They can do their own writing and creating.
And best of all, it really does come off!
By the end of your party, you’re probably not wanting to sit there and wipe off a bunch of wine glasses. So instead, wash your glasses as usual in the dishwasher. Then the next time you have some free time, follow this process for removing the markings/writing from the glasses…….
How to wipe Sharpie marker writing off of glasses:
1. Take another Sharpie marker and write over the top of the wording on the glass.
2. While the ink is wet, immediately wipe off the writing with a paper towel or tissue.
The point is, no need to use rubbing alcohol or anything – the ink comes right off!
Sharpies remove Sharpie markings!
It was our nephew Josh, who’s an electrician, who taught us that trick.
Do you ever use wine charms, or what’s your secret for keeping glasses straight among your guests when entertaining?
