Dab the spot lightly with paper towel and pure acetone (beauty supply aisle will have it). It worked when my toddler used marker in my new kitchen.

Great advice. Non-acetone nail polish remover also does the trick. (08/09/2006)

My daughter decided to write all over my computer screen, LCD. We used alcohol swabs and it came off completely. Thank God. Now we know for the next time. Hopefully there won't be. (09/18/2007)

Hey everyone you can use baking soda and alcohol swabs and mix them together, then wipe the permanent marker. It works very good, especially on wooden tables. (10/12/2007)

I used baby wipes and Baking soda on a mahogany table. It worked great. Thanks for the tip. I love this web page. Oh, and of course I still love my 2 year old. Haha. (10/26/2007)

Erase Permanent Marker from Varnished Cabinets

My 2 year old son drew all over my Mom's nice cabinets. She would have been so mad if it wasn't for the great tip. Thanks. I used a little Purell and Baking soda. Perfect. Didn't remove the varnish, but removed the Sharpie marker. Thank you. (12/28/2007)

The easiest way to remove permanent marker from any hard surface ie., glass, stained wood, white boards, etc. is to cover it with White Board marker then rub off. (01/27/2008)

alcohol/baking soda mix worked wonders!

My 2 yr. old daughter scribbled all over the dashboard, doors, windows, and visors of my vehicle. The alcohol and Baking soda mix took 95% of it off. I'm impressed enough to write this. (06/08/2008)

I would recommend spraying plain old hairspray on it, wiping it (this will get rid of some of it, and might smudge, it's OK), then squeezing toothpaste on it, then finally wiping and rising it off. This worked perfectly for small plastic things, but it may not be worth it for large things. (06/09/2008)

I had a brand new yellow (spendy) shirt from a resort that my child marked with black Sharpie. I called the company and they suggested straight rubbing alcohol. The Sharpie's are alcohol based she said. Anyway, it worked like a charm. No stains even remained. Lots of alcohol and rubbing though. As far as Sharpie on furniture/appliances, a cotton ball with finger nail polish remover takes it right off.
