I can't believe how well the pink eraser worked on my wooden table. Thanks a lot for such good advice!
I just removed black sharpies marks from my new wood floor with an eraser. It came off with little effort. Thanks!
OK - I can't believe it, but the pink eraser worked! Try it before you break out any household cleaner or alcohol. Once the PINK permanent marker was removed from the table, I used lemon oil furniture cleaner. My table has never looked so good! My husband's life was spared - as he had let our daughter color on a single sheet of paper (on the table) with the permanent marker.
Use an eraser for sure. It just worked for me on red sharpie on our new maple floor...phew!
I have used fingernail polish remover on permanent marker marks and it seemed to work for me.
Use Nicole's idea--just a regular pink eraser (you know, those rectangle ones) will usually do the trick. I've gotten permanent marker off a wooden table. Try other erasers if the pink kind doesn't work. Good luck!
How can I remove magic marker from my unfinished wood floor? I have tried everything from the Magic Eraser to WD40 with no luck. It's blue marker and a big mess and I am desperate before I have to sand down the floor and start over.
