Permanent Marker on Jeans

My cousin wrote on my jeans with black permanent marker. How do I get it out? They have not been washed.

Nail polish remover, I believe will do the trick. It may take a few tries, but it should come off. Wash well afterwards. You might try Goo Gone. I think it takes off permanent marker as well as sticky messes. Good luck.

I have removed permanent maker with De-Solv-it. It is citrus based and is safe for you and clothes. Nail polish remover may remove the color like bleach would. WalMart carries De-Sol-it on the cleaning isle. Hope this helps. (06/22/2007)

Gently rub over the marker stain with a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. (06/23/2007)

Hand sanitizer works great. I accidentally got Sharpie on a pair of twill pants. If you can't put something on the stain immediately, work on it with the hand sanitizer, then spray Zout on it before putting it in the wash. (07/09/2007)

There's this thing I got from an art store *Utrecht*. It was a set of different things to get rid of stains. Inside there's a thing called Kiss Off which supposedly gets off any stain. Right now I'm taking graffiti marker off a pair of jeans and I'm using it and it's working. Before this I used bleach, regular bleach for colors and regular detergent. Kiss Off worked the best.
