I use alcohol to clean my dry erase board; I wonder if that might take it out of the jersey. One thing I use for most stains is plain ole 3% peroxide, available in dollar stores. It takes out most any stain.

Try using the stuff that they use to clean the dry erase boards. Look in a store like Staples for this product. I have never tried it -- just a thought. But if it will dissolve it off the whiteboard, it should take it off a shirt that way.

You could also try hand sanitizer gel - the stuff that is mostly alcohol - rub it in and wash as usual. DO NOT put in the dryer!


If needed, treat and wash again, and then wash once more to be sure the alcohol is totally out of the shirt before putting it in the dryer. The last thing you want is a dryer fire.

Take it to a dry cleaners, for the simple $10 or less cost, versus the cost of buying and trying. They will tell you whether it can be done or not. Always tell the cleaners what the stains are, if possible. Clean things right away. The longer things sit, the harder to come out.

I had a stain like this and it came out with an old bar of soap

Use murphys oil soap or spot shot and hopefully it works :-)

I used magic eraser. Worked perfectly!

I'm scrubbing as hard as I can. And nothing's happening.


So that would be a NO on removing dry erase marker from my granddaughters coat.
