As I told you all a month or so ago, once we get settled at the new house I’ll be opening up my childcare business again. I am really excited about it but initially was a little nervous. There are lots of things I need and my budget is at about zero so cheap and free and my main options.
I love children’s books and want to have lots at for my childcare but again…cheap and free books are what I’m searching for. Last week at the thrift store I was able to find a few great books….some classic favorites of mine.
Sadly a few had writing in as they were once Christmas gifts. I know that bug spray often can remove permanent marker so I bought them hoping that it might work on there boards books.
I sprayed on a couple squirts and the marker got runny.
I stopped to take a picture and didn’t wipe it fast enough so some of the ink embedded a bit but at least it’s not the exact words. I hate for books to have writing in them as I don’t want the kids to think that writing in books is okay.
Had I wiped it up immediately, the ink would all have been gone.
I tried in on a different one of the books before the book I showed above.
There was writing all over with a black marker in the upper right hand corner near the gorilla. You can’t see the ink at all now!
Removing ink form things using spray is a tip that I use all the time…So many times thrifted goodies have the price written in marker. You’d be amazed at all the things it works on!
