Red Sharpie on wood kitchen islandOne of my sweet stampers shared with me her unusual use for the Stampin’ Blends Color Lifter. Somehow a mark appeared on her hardwood floor. No one would fess us which meant she couldn’t be sure what made the mark.

After trying a couple of different ways to remove the mark she decided to try her Color Lifter. She was thrilled when it made the mark disappear.

I was excited to try it because despite knowing better, I used a red Sharpie on my kitchen island with nothing beneath it. Imagine that, it left a mark. A mark that nothing was touching (photo above).

While it is not completely gone after using the Color Lifter, it’s certainly less noticeable and is no longer an angry red mark to aggravate and remind me of my stupidity. 

Use this tip with caution because every surface is different. There is no guarantee it will not harm your surface. It’s being shared with you because we are both happy with the results. It might save someone’s hide in your home. 🙂

Order a Color Lifter in my online store to use with your Stampin’ Blends and perhaps to remove unwanted color on floors or furniture.
