Sharpie Marker Mystery

Why is it that when I use a black Sharpie to hide a tiny bleach spot on a pair of black cotton pants, I have to reapply the marker after every washing because the Sharpie marker always washes out? 

'Black Marker Pen' by Stuart Miles, found at freedigitalphotos.net

But then when I get a tiny little bit of black Sharpie marker on my pink cotton t-shirt it won't come out no matter how many times or how many ways I wash it?!?!


  1. I love these uber-serious posts. Real head scratchers. I think that the Sharpie Marker has it in for you and it is personal. Confess: What did you do to the marker???

    1. Perhaps the marker knows how disrespectful I am to its kind, as I manage to lose full packs of these buggers every year. Around here, we figure there is a vortex just chock full of these markers hiding under our house!

  2. Things to ponder...
    Too funny!
    It's like lipstick, it wears of very quickly, but let it touch your clothing and it's there forever.

  3. Ahhhhh... that is a mystery....

  4. That's why I don't wear pink cotton T-shirts.

  5. What a bummer.... black specks on a pretty pink cotton tee. I get little white specks on my clothes when I pour bleach into the wash machine. You'd think we'd learn. Ha
