To clean permanent marker from almost anything, use non-acetone nail polish remover on a cotton ball. It even took the marker off of an antique piece with no damage. (04/05/2005)

We used rubbing alcohol to get it off the counters at my workplace. That ought to be safe for faces. (04/06/2005)

I've tried to use tooth paste then use oxy clean. Most people don't know how to use it. You have to let it set for 30 min then wash and scrub and do again for it to work on most things. (05/06/2005)

Hair spray will dissolve permanent marker from tables, counters,etc. instantly. Then just wipe off. (05/09/2005)

I had permanent marker on a white cotton dress shirt and got it out with some advise from above, and a little of my own experimentation. I had left it for 3 days before even attempting to get the stain out. I used the non-acetone rubbing alcohol and got the majority of the stain out. It was still very visible so I took some Tide laundry detergent and let that set on the stain for about 5 minutes, rubbed the fabric together and the stain is history! Thank goodness. (02/25/2006)

I used the toothpaste trick on my wood coffee table, and it worked great. My son recently wrote on our microfiber sofa with a sharpie, so I'm about to try the nail polish and possibly the insect repellant. As far as the kid's face goes, I'd say give it a few baths. (09/12/2006)

The insect repellant works great on everything except for wood. Or maybe it just doesn't work on unfinished wood. It lightened the color of the wood when I used it. (09/16/2006)
