Does it really all wash out?
You bet it does! eatsleepdoodle ink is completely water-soluble so it washes out on a warm machine wash leaving no mark at all.
And all eatsleepdoodle products have been thoroughly tested so we can guarantee it’ll all come out in the wash. Best of all, the ink won’t affect anything else in the wash, so go ahead and put your eatsleepdoodle textiles in with your whites and it will all come out ink-free!
Does every eatsleepdoodle textile gift come with pens?
Yes a set of ten wash-out doodle pens are included in every textile product – they are the essential ingredient! And extra sets of pens are always available if you have armies of doodlers coming your way.
What about when the doodle pens run out?
Although we do our best to fill our pens with plenty of ink for lots of colouring fun, they will unfortunately run out eventually. Top-up sets of eatsleepdoodle pens are all available on the website.
If I get doodle colour ink on other fabrics, will it wash out?
So long as the fabric itself is washable, the doodle ink will wash out.
Will colour go through the textile I am colouring?
With normal colouring very little or no colour should go through. With heavier colouring some dots of colour may go through, but provided you are colouring over a pillow or other washable item there’s no problem as the ink washes out of everything washable. If you have concerns, use a protective layer such as a clean tea towel underneath your eatsleepdoodle textile while colouring.
If you are colouring on a table or another non-machine-washable surface, you might want to use a protective layer if you are concerned that the surface is not readily wipeable, just in case any ink goes through the textile.
What age are doodle products suitable for?
eatsleepdoodle products are great for all ages, but we usually recommend reading age upwards just so that the recipient can read the print on the pen to know the difference between doodle pens and other pen types!
Do you have any colouring tips?
We love to fill our pens with plenty of ink so the colouring fun can go on and on. Which means that due to the absorbent nature of cotton and the pressure applied when colouring, some colour bleeding may occur when heavy colouring is occurring! Through testing in the eatsleepdoodle office, we have found that the best trick for perfect colouring is to border the area with the thin nib first, let that dry for a few seconds and then fill in using the thick nib.
When you want to have two colours right next to each other, let the first colour dry for a minute or two before adding the second colour. This will prevent the colours bleeding into each other.
Can I sleep on my doodled pillow?
Yes, absolutely. The colour will not blur or attach to skin unless it becomes damp.
If I get ink on my skin will it wash off?
Yes, it will wash off completely. It may require a couple of wash sessions with soap/detergent, but the ink will remove completely.
What if my child licks a pen – is the ink safe?
Yes, eatsleepdoodle ink is completely safe and non-toxic. Our pens and their ink have been tested to and comply with the highest international safety standards.
