Removing Permanent Marker from a Car

How can I remove permanent marker from car paint? I had some kid write on white car with black permanent marker. I would also like to make sure there is no shadow left behind.

I had my car parked outside over the weekend. Some kids (or so I hope) used multi color permanent markers all over the body door handles and glass of my car. That too with obscene text and drawings. I noticed it Monday morning. I was too embarrassed to even drive my car out. I went to Wal-mart and got a bunch of items. Nail polish remover, Dry erase cleaner, greased lightning, Mr magic eraser. Fortunately for me nail polish remover did the trick, didn't have to try the others.

Thank you all of you! This site rocks!

I came out of work today to find some idiot marked up my white Jeep Liberty with black marker! I was really disgusted. I came home, did a search and found this website. My husband tried the Mr. Clean Eraser and it all came off! Thank you to everyone who posted their suggestions!

We just had someone use a a red permanent marker on our brand new white Prius. The words were crude to say the least. I used nail polish remover and it came out immediately. I then washed off the area of the car with soap & water, rinsed thoroughly & dried with a soft cloth. No ghost & it looks brand new again:)
