Dry Erase Marker on Unfinished Wood

My son wrote all over the train track on our Thomas the train table with a dry erase marker. Does anyone have any tips on how to remove it? The wood is unfinished.

Try rubbing alcohol or an astringent. HTH Happy Holidays Julie (12/12/2005)

Christine my 3 year old did the same thing. So far everything I have tried has not worked. The list includes: alcohol, goo gone, goof off, greased lighting, Mr Clean magic eraser, hairspray, antibacterial hand gel, clorox bleach pen. I even tried using just a plain eraser. Nothing worked to remove it but in some areas it did get lighter. If you find out what works please post it & let me know. (02/06/2006)

Hi Lisa,

The problem with unfinished wood is that it will absorb the color. Your best bet is sanding the area until you can no longer see the color. (02/06/2006)
