Try aerosol hairspray. Our local "dented and dinged" grocery store marks their prices with sharpies and they have a sign at the registers to use hairspray if you want to remove the price. Worth a try.

I have had luck removing Sharpie ink with regular isopropyl alcohol from the grocery store or any drugstore chain. It doesn't harm most surfaces, and usually takes all the ink off.
