Got a dried-out marker that just won't work? Don't toss it in the trash. Whatever the reason is for the dried-out tip (maybe you left the cap off overnight?), it can be revived. All you have to do is place the tip of the marker in a small amount of rubbing alcohol and let it soak for 15 minutes. The rubbing alcohol will unblock any dried-out areas. Give it a try on a piece of scrap paper and your marker will be as good as new.
