Dry erase markers aren’t just for white boards. They are a great way to leave yourself or others temporary notes that can be easily wiped away later. If you’ve ever marked your favorite lid with a permanent marker, you’ve likely wished you didn’t later when it didn’t come off. You can easily put names, contents, and dates on food lids with a dry erase marker and remove it later.
While you’ll want to double check the surface you’re writing on is enamel-like and works with dry erase markers, many surfaces work well including glass, mirrors, porcelain, and other smooth/nonporous surfaces.
