Hi Louisa May,

Thanks so much for your reply! Where I bought mine the write said it's good for markers too: *Ranger PERFECT INK REFRESHER Refresh Pad Marker Condition

Here are the instructions for the marker refreshing (though I haven't tried it myself since my bottle hasn't arrived in the mail yet)

"For Water Based Markers: Remove the end plug from the marker or gently pull the nib out. Use an eyedropper to apply Ink Refresher to pen reservoir. Return the plug or nib. Allow a few minutes for the moisture to saturate the ink core before using"

I do find that I do have to re-ink a lot of my pads often and some of the lids are loose (According to Ranger, new pads have more ink & are deeper pads). I have noticed quite a difference between ones I bought recently. The new pads are much more inky & lids are tighter. I've been thinking about storing them in an air-tight container because I think they evaporate in my climate.

Gotta love em!

It doesn't make the colors darker (I didn't want that anyway), but it makes the ink flow. In my post I made a mistake when I said it refreshed "water based markers." I don't know where I got that. I meant other dye based inks! The refresher will help the ink blend better.
