Have you ever tried Solumel from Melaleuca or Mr. Clean Magic Eraser? I have found that both these products are wonderfully helpful when I have a crisis with stains in my household.

My daughter scribbled all over the front of my White Refrigerator in regular writing Blue Ink Pen. After reading the posts here, I used a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser and some perfume. It lifted the ink on contact and broke it up so all I had to do was wipe it off. My husband came with his cologne half way through the cleaning and it didn't work as well as my perfume. So maybe if one perfume doesn't work as well, try another. I used "Jadore" by Christian Dior.

Thank you all for the tips! You saved me!!(2/08/08)

NOTHING beat a Mr. Clean eraser for marks on our fridge. I thought our handles would never come clean till I tried the Mr. Clean, it's got anything and everything that has come across the fridge.

I just found that Magic eraser and rubbing alcohol worked great. The permanent marker came off, some of it wiped right off the other part I had to scrub a little, put I got it all off the refrigerator the kitchen floor and the walls.

Chemico pink paste. Nothing moved the felt pen and I was sure we were stuck with someone's foolish expectation that felt pen could be easily removed.

Well the Chemico is the miracle worker.

Today I came here because I got permanent marker on my mom's countertop (I think it is formica). I'm only 14 so I don't know much about cleaning. I tried everything from salt water, easy-off BAM, and scrubbing bubbles, even toothpaste but nothing worked. I had to tell my mom, of course, and she tried Bar Keeper's Friend (the powder) and it came right off. I hope this helps!

Wow, I just tried using OFF bug spray to get the marker off the fridge-and it took it right off! I'm amazed!

I blew a fuse after my son drew on the fridge with a black Sharpie...Mr. Magic Eraser, hairspray, even paint thinner didn't work. Nail polish remover (with acetone) took it right off! Thank you (especially in my son's name! LOL)!

Perfume works perfect! It doesn't hurt the surface and is usually handy. Plus the room will smell nice. You can use cologne too!

Aquafresh Triple Action Toothpaste took it right off when alcohol, perfume, WD40, fingernail polish remover, and shaving cream did not work at all.

I've used permanent markers on the job everyday for 35 years. When I mark an object (metal ie) incorrectly I just go over the mark again with the permanent marker and wipe immediately with a rag the wet marker will draw out the dry first mark making it easier to wipe off.

The best way that I completely got the permanent marker off my white fridge was with hairspray and bleach. I first sprayed the hairspray to make the mark lighter, after that I cleaned with bleach, with no little work the bleach just did it's job. Hope this helps!

My husband used dry erase marker on our white fridge and it would not come completely off. There was a shadow left where he had written. We tried Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, 409, finger nail polish remover, clorox bathroom cleaner and a bunch of other stuff.

Finally we tried John Deere Ultra Surface Polish. (I use this to clean my ceramic stove top) it worked great! Took the stain right off and left my fridge looking great. I think you can get this stuff at any John Deere dealer. It's in a small yellow/white bottle.

I know this going to sound crazy but it really works! Rud the area with rubbing alcohol for 30 seconds-then dry-then rub area with toothpaste (use same amount you would to brush your teeth) for 30 seconds-then wash with hot water and dry......stain gone!
