Although not normally found in your cupboard there is a product called PEC-12. Google to find it or stop at your local photostore. This product it used to clean permanent maker or inks from photos. I works great. Does not work on water soluble ink. I buy this by the quart as I use it in my business. You can buy it in a 4 oz bottle. I can't believe the items saved by this product. I've used it on counter tops, metal, plastics, etc.

I am a housecleaner, and I have had good luck removing permanent marker by going over it with a dry erase marker and immediately wiping both of them up. It has worked on formica countertops for me. Always try in an inconspicuous place.

Try using rubbing alcohol or hairspray on the stain. Works for me.

WD-40 works well. Spray on mark, rub, then wipe up.

Have you tried an SOS pad? I've used one in the past on Sharpie and it did the trick. Be careful not to scrub too hard.

Give a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser a whirl. I swear by those things as they'll get rid of just about anything.

Insta Lift spray. This spray may be purchased at Menards. It took the red sharpie marker off of our linoleum in the kitchen.

As others have said, the isop alcohol and nail polish remover did nothing. The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser did the trick, with a little scrubbing.
