Bright Idea

Add neon hues to projects with this six-pack of alternative highlighters. The Eco Dry style means they're free of ink solvents, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or what makes some markers so stinky and plastic. Ultimately, they work more like a jumbo colored pencil than a highlighter-marker.

Available at, $18.99.
