Protecting a Mug from Pen Marks

Let's face it. Mugs and cups are sooooooooooooo universal. I have used mugs for pen holders a lot. But then, I wanted to sell them and oops, there are pen marks inside. You either have to bleach them or scrub them. Sometimes they are a lost cause.

Today an idea literally "fell into place". I was reorganizing the pantry and this lid fell into this cup. I thought, "how cool is this that pens can leak and mark all they want, but the cup will still be nice and safe to drink from".

So here is the tip. Line a cup with a lid that will protect your cup and still come out when you want to use it for drinking, selling, or giving.

N-JOY!

This idea is brilliant!! Wow!! My very favorite Sandra Boynton mug was ruined by pen. It was on my work desk for years then when I left that place I had wanted to use it as a mug again and I couldn't. Then insult to injury, that was when eBay was just getting big and I learned it was actually very valuable...double smack down on me. I wish I knew this tip all those years back! Thanks bunches for sharing!! You have my vote!

Well thanks so much for the compliment. There is an old saying that "we are too soon old and too late smart". I am sorry about the cup. I have a "Breakfast at Tiffany's" I am trying to sell so I know what you mean. I had a Maxine mug with an oblong base so I just lined it with tissues. I have found lids have saved me more times than I can count. Thanks again!

Make sure the points are retracted or caps on pens.
