Remove marker pen marks
Permanent marker is easier to remove than you would first think. So read on for a few ways to remove permanent marker.
Permanent marker on hard surfaces.
You can either use simply a pencil eraser. This will remove the marker pen marks. It will not leave an eraser mark. Another method is toothpaste. Just rub the mark with toothpaste. Saves a lot of scrubbing and chemical smells.
Permanent marker on fabric.
Hairspray will remove permanent marker from fabric. Simply spray the mark with hairspray, when the mark starts to dissolve, rinse through with water. Rubbing alcohol will work in a similar manner.
Using these two methods as a guide can get some great results. I have had letters reporting success using a combination of both of these tips. Depending on the type of fabric you might want to try toothpaste, or even hairspray on a solid surface. As with all the tips on the TipKing website, these are guides giving you the information for a trial and error approach.
