Campout in the Backyard

I had a campout with the girls on Friday night (while Gina was able to spend a little peacetime inside :-)). 

“Best day ever!”
– the girls

Sharpie on Keytops

“Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.”

– Dr. Seuss, Oh The Places You’ll Go

Sharpie permanent marker (and tape residue) on piano keytops? ….
BEFORE:

AFTER:

????????????????????????????????????

100% Acetone (nail polish remover) took the Sharpie off quickly, but not the scotch tape residue…that took lots of hard finger work!
image

The main downside of using Acetone is that the keys lose their original glossy finish. But then again there probably isn’t much that would remove permanent marker and maintain the original glossy finish at the same time…I may try a Magic Erasure next time however…

“You can start right where you stand and apply the habit of going the extra mile by rendering more service and better service than you are now being paid for.”
