Removing Sharpie from Piano Keys

My daughter put a Sharpie stain on one of the keys of our piano. Any suggestions on how to remove it? Thanks.

Hey Hemakapadia, try alcohol, it should come right off :)

Try using a little bit of fingernail polish remover on a cotton ball. I have gotten Sharpie off plastic, as well as hard things. Hope this helps.

Alcohol works really well. If that doesn't do it, try a bit of baking soda on a damp cloth scrubbing carefully. The abrasive soda should take it off with a bit of elbow grease.

You can use a dry erase marker, rub it over the sharpie stain, and it should work. I saw this on the internet so give it a try if you want to.
