Chalk Lines Take a Powder
Issue: Issue 261
Posted Date: 11/2/2010
If you snap many chalk lines, you know that the red or blue chalk leaves stains that are hard to get out of the wood. I don't use either of them anymore for that reason. Instead, I fill my chalk box with baby or talcum powder. It leaves a bright white chalk line that rubs or washes off easily. No more staining problems for me!
