Permanent marker is called "permanent" for a reason. It's very difficult to remove. While difficult to remove, there are some things you can try. This is a guide about removing permanent ink from fabric.
When I was in like third grade I decided to write my school's name in Sharpie on my little backpack. I'm now a sophomore and I have tried and tried, but can't get it out of the backpack. Please help!
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
how about jansport backpack?
Some one drew on my school bag with permanent marker. So how do I get permanent marker off of my back-pack?
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.
that idea worked really well thankyou for your help

I have used Murphy's Oil Soap to get dry erase marker out of different clothing with some success.
How do I get silver permanent marker off my red backpack? My little sister wrote her name all over it and I need to get this off ASAP!
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.
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
My daughter used the Sharpie pens on her backpack a while ago; how do you get the ink out?
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.
My friends wrote something bad on my gray backpack and I was wondering what to take it off with ASAP because it's bad for people to see
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.
While using a Sharpie permanent marker, I got some on my sweater which is 65% polyester and 35% cotton. Any ideas on how to remove this stain?

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.
Try spraying the ink spot with hair spray then rinse with cool water.
Use hairspray and Alcohol
