Permanent Marker on a Wood Floor

HELP! My husband is going to kill me! My 2 year old just used red permanent. marker all over our wood stairs. I've tried everything on here; Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, Toothpaste, and bug spray! I used Krud Kutter, it's taking the finish off of the stairs!

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 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!

I have used fingernail polish remover on permanent marker marks and it seemed to work for me.

I can't believe how well the pink eraser worked on my wooden table. Thanks a lot for such good advice!
