Take a cotton ball or a cotton swap (q-tips), wet them down a little with nail polish remover, or rubbing alcohol, then wipe away the text

Usually, Permanent means permanent. Can you draw or paint or sew on a patch over it?

I have had good luck using isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol to remove black sharpie from a fabric backpack. It will take some work and it may remove dye from the background too. Try using a cotton ball or q-tip to a small part to see how it reacts.

Good luck!

I have had good luck using straight isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol. You may have to do it more than once to get all the black off and there is also a chance that it will take up the dye of the backpack, so test a section first.

Good luck!

Use soap and water and rinse for about 10 minutes if it's not out try hairspray and let it sit still not out I'd wash with soap 1 more time for about 10 more minutes there should be a wonderful result good luck

I used hand sanitizer on the marker stains. Pour the sanitizer on the stain and blot until all is removed. This worked for me. Hope this helps.

I have a black backpack with silver Sharpie permanent marker on it. I need the writing off of it before tomorrow. Any suggestions? I can't go buy a new backpack or anything at the store. I'm on a budget. Any ideas?

If you have a black permanent marker can't you go over the silver with that. I don't know of any way that you can get the actual silver writing off, other than covering it with black marker.

I have had good success getting black Sharpie off of a backpack with Rubbing Alcohol. I'm not sure how different the silver is from the black, but it would be a good place to start. Worst case, it might just lighten it.

Good Luck, let us know how it turned out.

alcohol..and not the type you drink lol....lay on top of a towel you no longer want, like if it's on a arm seperate the fabric so it's only the layer with the spot (understand?) and pour alcohol over it letting it go through into the towel.
