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.

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.
