I have permanent marker on metal bathroom stalls. How do I get it off?
You can draw over it with a dry erase marker and use a rag to wipe off.
I do the dry erase marker trick, too but sometimes when there's some left over, I will use wd-40 and a soft cloth
Have you tried rubbing alcohol?
To remove sharpie from metal,you'd have to keep scrubbing soap and water on the sharpie mark until the mark fades away.I hoped this worked!!!
How do you remove red Sharpie from a brass doorknob?
By joshnoodle from Mauldin, SC
Alcohol or denatured alcohol should do it.
I haven't tried it myself, but read recently that if you go over permanent marker with dry erase marker, then rub it off with the dry erase brush both marks will be removed. Good luck.
In a hidden place take the sharpie and make a mark, let it dry then write over the mark again and quickly wipe both marks. The new ink should remove the old. You may have to do this more than once. If it satisfies you here, go to the real mark you need to remove and repeat without letting the ink dry. Also try nail polish remover, again in a hidden place always when experimenting.
Oh my god thank you so much! This worked so well and got it off so quickly!!!
in a pinch try hand sanitizer at work for me
absolutely useless. made it worse
does not work
Nope, didn't help at all.
How should I go about removing Sharpie from an old tin lunch box without removing the paint?
Just a suggestion try clean the marks off from the inside. Tin should be thin enough for the derutent hot water wax. Which they use for cleaning spray paint off walls. Thanks for your hits and tips.
If you have any acetone or nail Polish remover it should work. Ithe worked for me
We found Ajax powder cleaner to work!
