Miss Magic Marker

A magic marker, or permanent marker,  consists of a container tube and a core of an absorbent material. This filling serves as a carrier for the ink.  Until the early 1990s, the most common solvents that were used for the ink were toluene and xylene.

These substances are both harmful and characterized by a very strong smell. Today, the ink is usually made on the basis of alcohols. Many people today miss the peculiar odor and the effect of true magic markers. Those were the days!
