MoodClue FAQ's

How long does it take for MoodClue markers to dry? 

The liquid chalk markers generally dry in less than 2 minutes. They become smudge-proof and fully dry in about 5 minutes. At this point, they don't easily rub off against bags or clothing.

What else can I use the markers on?

The easy-clean markers work on any non-porous surface. You can use them on mirrors, glass, windows, stainless steel, sealed tiles and stones, many appliances, whiteboards, chalkboards, bistro boards, etc. Not suitable for low quality chalkboards or chalkboard-painted walls. If you're unsure if a certain surface is non-porous, test a small amount in the corner.

How do I get the MoodClue markers to work?

The markers need to be "started" which means that you need to shake the marker then press and pump the tip against a writing surface. This will cause the ink to flow into the tip. It takes about 90 seconds - be patient. Fun is about to arrive!

How do you clean the MoodClue bag-tag?

You can use either a wet or dry cloth to wipe your drawing/writing off the MoodClue bag-tag. You can also put it into the sink for even quicker clean. They wipe off like a whiteboard.

If I get marker on my clothes, how do I get it out?

The markers are liquid chalk so that if you get it on clothing, it washes right out with a little bit of water. 

Can I take my MoodClue bag-tag and markers on a plane?

The FAA is fine with taking MoodClue bag-tags and markers on an airplane but please start the markers BEFORE you fly. The pressure on airplanes causes the markers to start quickly which makes the ink spurt out. If they have been started at ground level, they work great on an airplane. This may happen in high alpine environments too, so start your markers before taking them to the top of the world! Your sherpa will appreciate it! 

How do I change the tip of the markers?

The tips of the markers are reversible. You can have either a chisel tip or a rounded tip - just pull the tip straight out and then reverse it.

Is the MoodClue bag-tag sharp around the edges?

We purposefully made the bag-tag point rounded for safety. Additionally, the metal is thick (a heavy gauge) and coated in two layers of our proprietary coating so the point is not sharp.
