Daily Wire Tip: Removing Marker Measurement Marks
Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip
I love making your unisex wire bracelet along with all the other projects I have seen. My question is how do you get rid of the permanent marks that you make on the bracelet without ruining the wire? Is that the only marker that you should use when marking your pieces?
Most folks use just a regular marker to make the necessary marked measurements on their wire jewelry projects. To remove these marks, use either a polishing cloth or a cotton swab that has been dampened with denatured alcohol (which will not harm any type of wire). After using the denatured alcohol, clean the area with a piece of t-shirt.
Denatured’ alcohol is not the same as rubbing alcohol (which will not work). As this product has different appearances and uses all over the world, for full detail about this product, please follow this link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Denatured_alcohol In the United States, it can be purchased at your local hardware store.
