I had some trouble with the latest batch of Sharpie markers I bought from Amazon. I’m trying to determine if they changed the formula, or if is a problem with certain colors or what. I have been trying to find the same marker assortment locally but having trouble, which would help me determine what the issue is. If Sharpie did change their formula, I will order the Amazon Basics markers and try those. Basically I don’t want to give directions if they don’t even work properly. The idea with Sharpies was they’re consistent and available everywhere. So keep being patient while I continue my testing and I’ll let everyone know as soon as the How2 is ready. In the mean time, hang on to the green cables, as it doesn’t hurt anything. The green will all be covered up, whether there’s a little or a lot.
