Handyman and DIY Cleaning permanent marker off car paint
Submitted by Justin
Using hairspray works like a charm. Marker rubs right off.
What kind of Hairspray?
Car Got Vandalized on 2005-07-24
Hi... my car which is black in color had been vandalized with black marker fortunately in a very small area in the form of an "A." I tried using hairspray but it didn't work at all... is there a particular type of hairspray... or a particular way to do it?
Not coming off?

@vandalized: Anything alcohol-based seems to take permanent marker off immediately. Don't know why hairspray wouldn't do the trick.
Use Car Engine Oil
