Teacher shows off surprising hack to refresh marker pens

When elementary teacher Sandy Owens’s whiteboard markers stopped working, she turned to Google for a solution. She found an ingenious fix, which she demonstrates in this video. Owens swings a marker on a string over her head, spinning it around 25 times while joking, “I feel really silly!” She then tests the marker, which is now seen to be refreshed. As Owens notes, the fix is caused by centrifugal force which causes ink to move to the felt tip of the pen. This is also noted on Owens posted the video to her Facebook page on May 23, to pass on the tip to teacher friends. Credit: Sandy Owens via Storyful
