I haven't tried it myself, but read recently that if you go over permanent marker with dry erase marker, then rub it off with the dry erase brush both marks will be removed. Good luck.

If you draw over the sharpie with a dry erase marker it should wipe off.

I do the dry erase marker trick, too but sometimes when there's some left over, I will use wd-40 and a soft cloth

Oust air freshener will bring it off non-porous surfaces. My toddler covered the floors and coffee table with a sharpie.
