Removing Red Sharpie from Pink Satin Dress

How do I remove red sharpie permanent marker from a pink satin formal dress? I made the dress my self and I need it in two weeks for a wedding. Can anyone help me? I do not want to wreck the dress. It already leaves spots when it gets wet.

Don't mess with it -- take it to a professional cleaner!

(been there, done that)

Can you cover it with a bit of lace, some sequins, a silk flower, a rhinestone pin?

I would try hair spray. Saturate with the hair spray and then wash as normal. If you notice the stain getting lighter, then repeat until the stain is gone. This works great on ink, so worth a shot.

Try spraying the offending mark with hairspray, and blotting with paper towel. Make sure it gets quite wet with hairspray.When you are ready, wash in moderately warm water with strong soap. You may need to rub a little.

This has worked for me, so I hope it will help you.

PS: You may need to repeat the process.
