You may be able to remove permanent marker from your nylon jacket with the right products and process. This is a guide about permanent marker stain on a nylon jacket.
As soon as possible, spray the mark liberally with hair-spray. Allow to sit for one minute then rinse in clear warm water. If some stain remains, repeat, until all stain is removed and then launder as usual. A friend of mine suggested this to me and it works great!

I tried hairspray on permanent market on my white linen trousers and nothing. Used stain devil and nothing or with acetone. Tried bleach and it slowly faded away took about 10 minutes. Kept and eye on it as I didn't want it turning yellow on the off chance I forgot they were soaking.
Permanent marker is called that because it is difficult to remove. Once it has gotten onto clothing which is subsequently dried the task of removing it becomes more difficult, but not always impossible. This is a guide about removing permanent marker from dried clothing.

Try spraying with a cheep hair spray and blotting with a paper towel. Worth a try you can use the rest of the cheep hair spray to kill wasps and bees just spay it on them and it kills them.
My blue permanent maker fell out of my hand in art class and it got on my 100% polyester top. I washed and dried it. Any ideas on how to get it out?

Use cold water and Dawn dish detergent. Get that shirt or whatever off immediately get wet first Then put Dawn on it and scrub with the tips of your finger in the direction of the mark and then in a circular motion. I just now did it and it came right out! My it-shirt was 60% Cotton and 40% polyester. Hope it works for you. I am quite amazed right now. Very cool. Good luck!!

My favorite jacket has been drawn on with permanent marker and the stain has been there for months. Is there any way to remove dried permanent marker?
I am sorry to kick-start the thread again, but could do with some advice. I have a fully signed England shirt (in black permanent marker), which is great. Unfortunately at the top, it's signed "to all at XXX'', XXX being my work place. But I've been given it as a gift from management. Is there a way of removing the "to all at, etc." without removing any of the rest (signatures)? Thanks.
I got dark blue sharpie on my slate gray coat. The part of the coat that got the stain is cotton, and the inside of my coat is polyester and the coat itself is dry clean only. How do I get the stain out with out putting it in the washer?

Try a little alcohol. Alcohol breaks up inks. If you don't have that handy, try hairspray, as it has alcohol in it. Try it in a nonconspicuous place first just to make sure it would affect the color.
What kind of hairspray do I use? Does it have to be aerosol hair spray?

How do I remove a Sharpie permanent marker stain from a cotton/poly shirt?
By Cas from Chicago, IL
Try saturating the stain with aerosol hair spray (not a pump), let it set for a few minutes then blot. I know it works on walls, not sure about clothing. If that doesn't work try a cleaner called "Spray Power". I buy it at Walmart (in aisle with multi surface cleaners like Windex) for about $2 and I use it on just about everything, especially clothes. I hope it helps! (09/27/2010)

My favorite pair of jeans has permanent marker on them, it's a huge line from mid thigh to my knee. My dad, not remembering they had marker on them, washed them. Is there anything I can do to save them?

I know for certain that hand sanitizer gel gets rid of permanent marker on CDs and skin, so it might do the trick here. Try dabbing some on with a cotton ball to soak up the marker stain then wash as usual. Rubbing alcohol is worth trying if that doesn't work. Good luck to you. (02/28/2010)
How do I remove a red marker stain from beige cotton slacks?
By Viki from Mulino, OR
Use a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol and lightly rub with the swab with a folded paper towel underneath to "pull" the ink out. This also works with dry cleanable clothing. Just don't rub to hard, as this will lighten the spot more and "fuzz" the fabric. Hope this helps.
You can get a product called Amodex. It's available at grocery stores, etc. in the stain remover section. It works best on stains that have not already been treated with other products. (01/23/2010)
