Permanent maker won't come off on clothing, the heat just keeps setting it into the metal.

Does anyone know how to get permanent marker off of the inside of your dryer? My daughter and her husband do laundry all the time at my house and he forgot to take a permanent marker out of his pants from work and now we have a mess! It's all over my king size comforter as well and I'm almost afraid to run anything through it because I don't want to ruin anything else. Any ideas?

Now to remove the grease from the wd40 (and what's left of the marker) I plan on using some chemicals from work; bio-t 300 citric acid soft solvent degreaser. Don't know how easy it is to get a hold of this stuff, but if it works well I'll post. (02/25/2008)

My son left some indelible markers from work in his shirt pocket and put it through my machines. The dryer? Oh my, what a mess! I tried many suggestions. Bleach soaked on towels did a fair job, but still left behind unsightly marks.
My husband uses "Deep Woods Off" (insect repellent) to get pen marks off his desk at work and it worked like magic on the dryer? I had spent a fair bit of money on various products, but nothing worked like this.
Just remember, this is a flammable product so much caution is needed when using in a gas dryer, and protect your nose and mouth from fumes. Turn off the gas and clean out the dryer well after using. Hope this helps.
