Removing Marker from Jewelry Wire
by Dale Armstrong
Question:

Hello Dale, I have yet another question for your expertise. I use the permanent marker as you suggest on the back side of my wire, but how does it come off? Is there something I could use to remove it? I hate to show my jewelry with a black line. Thank you so much for your great videos.

Answer:

Hi Mishi, I am so glad that you enjoy working with my videos - thanks! We have had several great discussions on how to remove all types of residue from your finished wire jewelry pieces. A lot of folks have added to my suggestion of using denatured alcohol on either a cotton swab or t-shirt piece, such as: "Skin-So-Soft", "Goof Off", nail polish remover, "Goo Gone", rubbing alcohol and "pure" alcohol (from a hardware store).
