How do I remove sharpie permanent marker off of a formica table top?
Danielle from Orlando, FL
did you try calling the marker's manufacturer?

Try nail polish remover on a q-tip.
I've read here before that permanent marker can be removed by rubbing w/vegetable oil - haven't tried it, but it sure won't hurt anything!

WD-40.......always try WD-40 for anything on non porous surfaces.......works on many other things too....check out the web site......http://www.wd40.com/

Hi. Just wanted to thank you Barbie...it worked. My nephew wrote with a blue sharpie on the kitchen formica countertop. I tried the WD-40 and it worked! Thanks a bunch.

Those white magic erasers (sponge type things) are the BEST for EVERYTHING!! I would bet money that that would take the marker off your Formica. WD40 is also an excellent product, but if you don't have it, the white thing is awesome.
Magic eraser also took my grandsons crayon art work very easily from my painted walls
Magic eraser worked so much better than nail polish remover on my formica table top which again was used for my grandsons art work
Just discovered dark blue Sharpie marks on my 65 year od formica table, ugh! After reading the posts on here I used the Magic Eraser - took it right off!
