Can I heat-fix the edding 4500 textile marker and the edding 4600 textile pen with a hairdryer?

The ink in the edding 4500 textile markers and edding 4600 textile pens must be fixed with an iron to make it wash-resistant up to 60°C. This can only be done at the required temperature, i.e. the cotton setting on your iron, and by applying direct pressure to the fibres of t...

When I heat-fix a design applied with a textile marker, does it matter if I iron it on the front or the back of the fabric?

If you want to set the ink from the edding textile markers or textile pens, it makes no difference whether you iron directly over the design or you turn the fabric over and iron on the reverse. The main thing is to apply the heat without using steam in order to bond the ink particles and the textile fibres together more effectively. Some delicate fa...

Can you use the edding 8902 wooden floor repair wax kit to repair other surfaces such as PVC flooring?

Our tests were carried out on wood and laminate. PVC flooring is a very general term.

How can I prevent my edding markers from drying out?

Always ensure you replace the marker cap securely.  With some models you can clearly hear the characteristic “click” sound. If the marker isn’t closed properly and the nib dries out, the ink flow stops for good. Even topping up the marker won't help because the ink can’t flow through the dried-out nib. However, to get round this problem we offer rep...
