Uh-oh. You must know the feeling of coming across a felony crime in progress. That’s right: permanent marker already on — or being scribbled on — an important place where it doesn’t belong. Maybe it’s your new kitchen cupboards, the bathroom wall, someone’s face, or Heaven forbid…the carpet. UGH. So you went right to your good friend Google and started frantically searching for ways to get the stain out. If this hasn’t happened to you yet, it will. But don’t worry — we’ve actually got you covered with proven methods for removing permanent marker from just about anything.
1. From Clothing & Fabrics
And by fabrics, we don’t mean carpet or upholstery — there’s another tip for that. But if you’ve got permanent marker on your clothes, try hand sanitizer! Be sure to test in in an inconspicuous area first to make sure the hand sanitizer won’t do damage (it shouldn’t though). Rub, rinse, and repeat.
