Saturate stain with a cheap hairspray (pump), let sit for a minute, then rinse with tepid water. May have to repeat several times. (07/06/2005)

Isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol is really what is in the products that people have mentioned that works.

Lots of rubbing alcohol, and you're all better. Blotting works well. Be careful because as soon as you apply alcohol, the ink will be come very mobile, and may soak out of the spot into other parts of your clothes, ala capillary effect. (08/01/2005)

I worked powdered oxyclean into a soupy paste, applied it to the actual ink mark rubbed it into the mark left it sit for a half hour. After a half hour I put the clothes into the washer, filled with hot water, put double the amount of oxyclean into the washer, agitated the machine for a few seconds to distrbute the oxyclean and let the clothes sit for 2 hours like that. After 2 hours I washed them and dried and no pen left at all. One of the articles of clothing was a off white polo shirt. (02/28/2006)

Use rubbing alcohol but be careful to use a little at a time because the ink can come out of the clothes and run quickly. I got a pen mark on my khaki skirt and the isopropyl alcohol took it right out.

Nail polish remover (acetone) will remove permanent marker BUT may also take the color out of your clothes. Rinse immediately! Test on a spot that can't be seen before going crazy with the acetone. (12/10/2006)
