I also have these Maureen but find I use my black sharpie the most. It seems many of the others are never dark enough.....I don't know, just me?

Maureen - thanks for sharing your "secret weapon"! The first place I'm going to use it is on my own furniture! It makes me crazy when I get a scratch and it sticks out like a sore thumb. Thanks for the tip and I'm going to order it before the days end!

Maureen, love these types of tips here on AR.  The last time that I pulled out my cover-up sticks and markers they were dry so it's time for some new ones.  Will put these on the Home Depot and Lowes list.  Thanks!

Sally ~ Oh no the cat's out!  I think homeowners will still need us, though :-)

Shar ~ I use the black Sharpie a LOT but sometimes its just too dark.  I used the maple and oak ones here for some floor touch-ups and they were perfect!

Karen ~ It's so easy to carry this package around in your staging tool kit.

Kristine ~ That's right, to me the best advantage to these is that they prevent a flaw or ding from standing out any longer!

Ginger ~ give these a try, I'm sure you'll like them!  They don't get dry like my old ones did.

Maureen, I have one in my Staging Tote bag;-) I bought it couple years ago and at that point I had only one choice dark brown. I didn't know that there are 6 different colors now.

I have some markers, not sure what brand they are....but they always do the trick.  Read this tip online recently too:

 Crack open a fresh walnut, rub the nut on the scratch and watch the nuts' oil fade the mark.

Hi Sharon ~ Hey I love your tip with the walnut!  I'll give that one a try.

Hi Barbara ~ Glad to hear that these markers worked well for you, too.  I used one last week on a floor scratch and you couldn't even see where it had been.

Thank you for the nice Christmas wishes ... may you and your family enjoy this special holiday.  Wishing you many blessings in 2012!
