Pyrex measuring cups

Posted by on Mar. 8, 2013 at 9:45 PM

I have been holding on to my pyrex  for years.  I've had them so long that the measurements have rubbed almost all the way off.  I can kind of see the measurements, but it is a task.  Is there any way to mark the lines again?  I've tried a couple of things, but nothing has worked so far.  I'm sure someone has figured something out!

Maybe email pyrex and ask? Maybe they will send you a new set!

I collect beach glass and actually found a Pyrex measuring cup piece once =) lol

Maybe some kind of paint for glass projects would work. I painted wine glasses before so I know they make paint for glass but not sure how well it sticks after several washings. I think  I had to hand wash the glasses but can't remember. I gave them as gifts.

There is stamping ink for glass that stays put but no clue how to revive measuring cups.

That would be nice! It seems like such a waste of money to buy yet another one.

I didn't know about that. I'll have to try it out.

I tried the sharpie but it washed off. Maybe if I hand wash instead of throwing it in the hot dishwasher!

I saw these wine bottles at a craft show that had a short string of Christmas lights in them and were painted on the outside. They were so pretty!

I'm tired of positioning it just right so I can see the measurements
