I have a dresser that my son drew on with a green marker. I do believe that it's permanent. I have tried toothpaste and nail polish remover. Nothing worked, I really could use some help with this. Thanks.

Try a regular pink eraser (not the one on the end of a pencil, the rectangle one). Sometimes it works, especially if the dresser has a shiny finish. It will leave a weird scuff mark that you can then remove with furniture polish. (05/31/2009)
I've had good luck using rubbing alcohol. (05/31/2009)
Magic Eraser. It may dull the finish slightly, I apply slight pressure in small circular motions. We used this to get permanent marker off my son's car after his ex-girlfriend wrote graffiti on the trunk. (06/03/2009)
When trying to get permanent marker off dry erase boards I've used the non-permanent markers that come with the boards over the permanent marker then erase all of it with the board eraser that comes with the board. Good luck. (06/03/2009)
I couldn't believe it, but just a regular pink eraser got permanent blue sharpie off my white veneer desk. Thank you. (12/26/2009)
Thank you so much. I used a brown "gum" eraser because I didn't have a pink one and it took blue sharpie marker off of my dining table. Who knew? (01/10/2010)
