How to remove permanent marker

We’ve all had that moment. You know the one: When you first discover that your permanent marker is bleeding through the paper and all over your desk, or finding that your toddler has turned the hardwood floors into her own canvas. While permanent marker can seriously damage some surfaces, like marble, the good news is, it can be removed from most wooden surfaces with a little bit of patience and elbow grease. Plus, you probably already have most of these do-it-yourself treatments in your pantry or medicine cabinet.

Before you tackle your permanent marker stain, be sure to test these removal methods in an inconspicuous spot. If your wood is finished, unfinished, or stained, you may experience different results.

Ready to get removing? Try one of these at-home cleaning solutions to remove permanent marker from most wood surfaces.

Rubbing Alcohol

Regular old rubbing alcohol is an extremely effective—and extremely affordable—solution for permanent marker stains in wood. Grab some isopropyl alcohol from your medicine cabinet and pour it onto a clean, dry, cotton cloth. Dab, don’t rub, the spot with the cloth until the marker stain begins to lift. Then, wipe away the residue with a slightly damp cloth and pat dry. It may take a few rounds to completely remove the stain, but stop applying the alcohol if you notice stain or discoloration on your cotton cloth.

Vodka

Yup, this classic spirit can be a highly effective cleaner for permanent marker stains. Opt for plain vodka, making sure to avoid flavored variations—the sugars in flavored vodkas can actually make your stain worse. Like the rubbing alcohol method, soak a clean, dry, cotton cloth in vodka, and lightly dab the marker stain. You should start to notice the marker lifting from the wood surface onto your cloth.

Nail Polish Remover

If acetone-based nail polish remover can remove stubborn gel manicures, it makes sense that it can battle permanent marker, too, right? Use a clean, dry cloth to lightly dab your stain with an acetone-based remover. Avoid rubbing the stain, as nail polish remover can damage wood finishes. We highly recommend testing this method in an inconspicuous spot before really getting to work.

Hairspray

Another staple from your medicine cabinet, hairspray can do a lot more than keep your coif in place. In fact, hairspray is known to remove all kinds of stains—from permanent marker stains on wood, to stains from pen ink in fabrics. Simply spray the stain with a little bit of hairspray and wipe the residue away with a cloth.You should see the stain begin to lift immediately.

Baking Soda

Baking soda is a must-have ingredient in tons of homemade householder cleaners, but it can be an effective stain remover, too. Create a paste with baking soda and water, and gently rub it into your marker stain using circular motions. If you don’t have baking soda on-hand, toothpaste—not gel toothpaste—can have the same effect.

Melamine Foam

Otherwise known as Magic Erasers, melamine foam can be used to remove spots from finished wood surfaces. Stick to very gentle spot treatments, as rubbing the surface too hard can lift the finish and damage the wood.

Dry-Erase Markers

If you’re feeling extra bold—and your wood surface is painted or stained with opaque stain—try drawing over the permanent marker with a dry-eraser marker. Then, wipe the markings away. It seems counterintuitive, but often works on finished surfaces. Don’t try this trick on unfinished surfaces.

Fine Grit Sandpaper

Heads up: This technique should only be used on unfinished wood. Using a fine grit sand paper on finished or stained wood will—with certainty—remove the finish, stain, or paint. However, if you need to remove permanent marker from unfinished wood or lumber, a fine grit sandpaper is your best bet. Why? Marker can permeate unfinished wood and lumber. Sanding the area with a fine grit will gently remove a few (minor) layers of the wood’s surface, and lighten the stain. Avoid sanding too aggressively in one area though—you risk wearing a spot into the wood’s surface. Use larger, broader strokes instead.

If you’re removing permanent marker from a wood surface, be prepared to go through several rounds of very gentle cleaning with a clean, dry, cotton cloth. Avoid rubbing or scrubbing the stain, especially with an abrasive sponge, brush, or cloth—this may remove the wood’s finish or damage its surface. Always be sure to test your solution in a hidden spot—like the inside of a table leg or bottom, back corner of a desk—in case it damages your item’s finish or surface.

It is possible to save wood surfaces from marker stains, but if you’re dealing with a particularly tough permanent marker stain and the above techniques just don’t cut it, leave it to the professionals and contact a woodworker or furniture restoration service in your area.

How to remove permanent marker

The Spruce / Michele Lee

Don’t let a few permanent marker scribblings stand between you and your next secondhand bargain. You only need to gather a dry-erase marker and cleaning rag to remove those marker stains. The process takes just a few minutes!

Remove Marker Blemishes

To remove permanent marker from hard plastics, follow these simple steps.

  1. Color over the permanent marker you wish to remove with a dry-erase marker.
  2. Wipe over the area with a rag, and the permanent marker should come right off along with the dry-erase marker.
  3. Repeat if any permanent marker remains.

This process works so well because the rubbing alcohol in the dry-erase marker eats through the permanent marker, while the tip of the marker acts like a little scrub brush, lifting and removing the marks.

How to remove permanent marker

If you’ve ever had a permanent marker stain on your clothing, you know that simply washing the stain and running the clothes through the wash cycle will not remove it. There are ways that you can go about removing permanent marker stains from many different types of fabrics. In order to properly remove the stain, you’ll need to act quickly. Read on for a brief guide on how to remove the stain caused by a permanent marker on your clothing.

Step 1 – Apply Nail Polish Remover

One of the most effective means of removing a permanent marker stain from clothing is nail polish remover. Begin by dabbing a small amount of nail polish remover over the stain. Then use a clean rag to gently scrub the remover into the permanent marker. If that works to remove the stain, wash the clothing after the marker has been lifted from the fabric.

Step 2 – Salt Wash

Another good way to remove a permanent marker stain is to wash the item of clothing on the coldest cycle available for your washer. Do not use a detergent to wash the clothes; substitute with a cup of salt instead. Doing so can often help to lift or lighten stains on clothing.

Step 3 – Use Hairspray to Transfer the Stain

If the stain remains, place a paper towel underneath the stain on a table. Spray hairspray onto the surface of the material that has the stain on it. Dab the stain with a Q-tip. In many cases, the hairspray will cause the stain to transfer from the clothing to the paper towel beneath it.

While doing this, be careful not to spread the stain around with the Q-tip, as doing so may exacerbate the problem.

Step 4 – Use a WD-40 Blot

Blotting a stain with WD-40 can help to get the stain out, especially if it’s on a thicker material or a coarser fabric. Apply a small amount of WD-40 and blot at the stain with a paper towel in order to help remove it.

Step 5 – Use a Cream of Tartar and Lemon Juice Mix

Another method you can try is to mix equal parts of cream of tartar and lemon juice together in a cup or bowl. Apply the mixture generously to the area with the stain as well as the areas of the clothing surrounding the stained section. Allow the clothing to sit for a few minutes before running it in a standard cycle wash in your washing machine.

Step 6 – Scrub With Tooth Paste

Use a paper towel to scrub the stained area with tooth paste. Wash the stain with water and repeat if necessary.
Between these various methods of cleaning off the stain, you’re likely to be able to largely or even completely remove the permanent marker from your clothing.

One of these methods should have removed the permanent marker stain from you clothing. Hopefully, you won’t need to repeat the process on something else!

How to remove permanent marker

The markings made with permanent marker do not get removed easily which is why it should be used only for permanent markings, but in case there is some mistake for which you wish to erase it or if the job of that marking has been fulfilled and you wish to get it removed, you may choose to go for the following ways:-

How to remove permanent marker

How to Remove Permanent Marker from Anything

1. Check the Surface:-

In order to erase the marks of permanent marker, the first thing you need to go for is to check what kind of surface is it. If this one is the smooth surface, you may choose to wipe off the permanent marker’s mark using some paraffin oil or thinner liquid, etc. simply sprinkle the liquid and then wipe it off with the help of a dry cloth. The mark of marker will go away.

2. Use Rubber on It:-

In some other cases like a permanent marker’s mark over your geometry or white board, you may choose to wipe it off using a rubber that you bring into use in order to clear off the marks of a pencil. A rubber can wipe off even the old marker marks and it is not even hard to be wiped off and thus proves to be a better option.

3. Rinse It With A Cloth Of Boiling Soap Water:-

In case of the surfaces that are not smooth or in case there is some mark of permanent marker on a metal surface, you may choose to clean it off sprinkling some boiling water over it and then you simply need to wipe it off with a clean cloth. The marks of marker will go away.

4. Apply Some Oil Or Try Scratching, With Blade:-

In case the metal or other surface’s paint or quality does not mean to you, it may also be scratched off with a blade and then new paint can be made or else in case the surface is of glass, you may even wipe off the marker’s mark with help of some good stain remover liquid.

5. Even the Water Soaked Cloth with Tight Hand Works Sometimes:-

Even a water soaked cloth can work in case the marker made mark was a freshly made one. Simply make the cloth wet with water and use it with a hard hand to wipe off the marks made by marker. In case there are some hard to go stains, you may even bring some easy clean marker stain remover solution in use.

6. Use A Permanent Marker Erase Solution:-

A permanent marker cleaning solution can be made wiping the mark off with some acetone or some water mixed with oil can also be used in order to go for the same. Simply use a tight hand for the tough marks and a gentle and smooth wipe off for the easy to go marks.
