How to regain ink flow in Whiteboard markers that have run dry

Isn't it frustrating when your dry erase markers run out so quickly? Well, tie the non-writing end to a string and swivel it round in circles. The centrifugal force will draw the ink to the edge of the circle and your marker will be literally dripping with ink again (so be sure to keep the cap on!)
