Why Chalkola Markers Are Our New Favourite Product

Ideas using chalk markers

This post was originally about Chalkola Markers. However, the management team at Chalkola Markers has proved to be highly unreliable. They have left many customers without returned emails and reviewers with compensation. Because the photos have done well on Pinterest, I wanted to leave them as a source of ideas. Moreover, there are many equally as great chalk markers available through amazon. Below you will find my recommended picks as well as some of my family’s uses for washable chalk markers.



I get a lot of requests to review products. A lot. So far, the products I've chosen to work with have been nothing short of great. Chalkola is out ahead of the pack as they have exceeded our expectations. See 7 hacks/ uses with chalk markers here.



7 Uses For Chalkola Ink Chalk Markers


Here are 7 uses for washable chalk markers we’ve come up with:
  • Colour on anything metal (we used them on our stainless steel fridge), counters, windows, mirrors, pumpkins Anything non-porous, they work amazingly well on. However, the company recommends testing the markers on a small surface area first and then removing the markers just to be on the safe side. We’ve had no problems.
  • Practice ABCs
  • Decorate the windows for Halloween
  • Write notes on the counter for my husband
  • Write out a weekly calendar on our fridge 
  • Record my weight loss goals on my bathroom mirror (so I have to see them all the time)
  • For a laundry hack to remind whoever is switching over the laundry not to put certain things in the dryer

7 Uses For Chalkola Ink Chalk Markers


To clean them off of any non-porous surfaces, simply wipe with a baby wipe or damp towel and dry. My three-year-old successfully cleaned three full-sized windows on her own when wanting to start new drawings.
