I was able to remove Sharpie permanent marker from faux leather using WD-40. It came off super easy and didn't damage the finish. Good luck.

How can I clean permanent marker off vinyl siding on a mobile home?

You can try getting a little bottle of enamel thinner made by "Testors". I used to by it at a hobby store. It comes in little 1/4 ounce glass bottles. During the Xmas holiday I work at the mall personalizing ornaments and we use permanent marker on resin ornaments and the "only" thing that would remove the permanent maker is the enamel thinner..."not" alcohol.. and "not" nail polish remover. The thinner should work :)
Isopropyl alcohol should do it. Always works for me.
Hi, I tried several suggestions posted here to remove permanent marker from my vinyl siding (put on courtesy of neighborhood hoodlums). The Isopropyl alcohol did nothing at all. Mr. Clean's Magic Eraser helped but would take a long time and a lot of effort. Nail polish remover took it right off - easy - no work required. I recommend nail polish remover.
Stop stop STOP. Using alcohol and abrasives are the absolute WORST way to remove permanent marker from vinyl. This bad advice needs to be stamped out all over the internet.
A far superior way: 1. Get a dry-erase marker and write over the permanent marker. 2: Get a damp cloth. 3: Wipe it away. 4: Repeat as needed.

Acetone....comes is a metal can like paint thinner. This is very strong so test a spot first. I just finished cleaning my husband's boat seats....attack of daughter with a ball point pen. No elbow grease needed. Wash promptly with water and then we conditioned with some "armor all" like you would a car. Acetone can dry things out. (Your hands too.)

Hi..I read in a women's magazine that BUTTER will get ink and marker off of vinyl and plastic..it says to apply it generously and let it sit for about 45 minutes. The fats in the butter displaces the ink and absorbs it. I tried this trick on my daughters Barbie doll face...after trying everything else to no avail and ...it worked like a charm.

You could also try the magic eraser.
I just used the most awesome stuff to take permanent marker off a vinyl folding chair! It's called Goof Off - the Ultimate Remover and is available at Home Depot, Lowe's and most paint stores for about 5.00 a can. It took the marker off without any scrubbing or damage to the chair - good as new!
