Removing Permanent Marker

OK I have tried the eraser and the rubbing alcohol on my floors, to remove the permanent marker but there is still a light like purplish color on there. Anymore suggestions you could give me to get the rest of it out? Please I need some help! My husband will blow if he sees how bad it really is.

Removing permanent marker from doors

My 3 year old nephew decided to take a black sharpie to the front door. I sprayed a little Windex on it and used the magic eraser and a ton of elbow grease and it came off in about 20 min. (11/20/2007)

Tried the nail polish remover on my jeans, didn't work too well. I then tried the bug spray and it worked great. (12/02/2007)

Wow I was reading this thread and decided "What the heck. I'll give it a try" I picked up a pencil and viola the permanent marker that my cousin had written on the desk with is gone. A word of advice though. If you have a large stain and not just a small streak then I suggest cleaning the eraser on a piece of paper every once in a while. The marker stains the eraser and if you use it for to long without cleaning it off then it will just start to smear the marker. So just take some paper and "Erase" on it until the marker stained part has been rubbed off. (12/06/2007)

I got a little streak of permanent marker off of my Samsung computer monitor with a regular pencil eraser. It came right off in seconds!

Thanks. My granddaughter used a permanent marker on my Dell computer monitor. She also used a pen previously on the same monitor. I used a regular pencil eraser, and they both came off!

A pencil eraser really does work. I just tried it now. Amazing. (01/03/2008)

I tried a pencil-top eraser and that worked much, much better. However, I found that a PaperMate brand eraser works far better than a Staples brand eraser. I needed to press a lot harder on the screen when using the Staples brand eraser to get the same results; something you don't want when pressing on an lcd screen. (01/05/2008)

I was removing Sharpie brand permanent marker from my backpack. I believe the fabric is called cordura. The Rubbing Alcohol sort of worked but made the marker bleed more than anything. Then I tried some WD-40 and it worked like a charm!

After reading this, I tried it all and nothing worked at all. So my husband brought me a can of Carb and Choke Cleaner from the garage and it worked like magic. The marker stain melted of the wall which by the way was textured wallpaper. So this is the stuff to use. (01/24/2008)

My two year old son used a permanent marker on my desk, keyboard, and two 19" LCDs. It took two pencil erasers to clean the screens and keyboard up. I also used anti static cleaning wipes on the screen that cleaned up the smudges from the eraser. (01/28/2008)

My 2 year old found a blue sharpie and colored the linoleum floor, all over! I began with Spot Shot, then moved to the pencil eraser, then WD-40, then the Magic Eraser (that was working but taking FOREVER), then OFF insect repellent. I wish I would have started with the OFF first. I can see I'll need a few more coats of the OFF but that was a dream in comparison. Unfortunately she got a little too close to the nearly white carpet and drew a couple of 4 inch lines. With the help of the carpet steamer it looks much better but unfortunately not perfect. You gotta love 2 year olds! (01/29/2008)

To remove from a monitor screen:
Color over the permanent marker with a dry erase marker. Then wipe off the dry erase marker. It should take it off. (01/30/2008)

MY 2 1/2 year old got a hold of a sharpie black pen and use my 20inch LCD as his art mat. After doing the typical soap and water I read this and found that "Off Deep Woods" spray was the best and didn't even hurt my monitor.
