Use Baby and Talcum Powder to Make Chalk Lines on Projects
posted on August 1, 2009 by Woodworker's Journal
Drawing lines with talcum or baby powder Red and blue chalk leaves lines on your projects that can sometimes stain, but drawing them with talcum or baby powder allows for an easy clean-up.

If you snap many chalk lines, you know that the red or blue chalk leaves stains that are hard to get out of the wood. I don’t use either of them anymore for that reason. Instead, I fill my chalk box with baby or talcum powder. It leaves a bright white chalk line that rubs or washes off easily. No more staining problems for me!
