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!

Good luck,

I tried it and it didn't work but I used Clorox2 and I got it off.

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

YIKES I used Magic Eraser on the permanent ink marks on a blue formica table. The ink came off, but so did some of the formica color. I am horrified.

I used Clorox bleach. this might only work if you have white Formica counter tops though. It also got on my arm! XP
