Removing Permanent Marker from the Dryer

Does anyone know how to get permanent marker out of your dryer? I accidently left it in work pants.

Use Hand Sanitizer to remove the first layer. It only removes the black marks. They usually turn light grey. Treat only the affected areas. Let dry for about 30 minutes.

Use Muskol Mosquito Repellent Spray. Spray directly on affected areas. Let stand for 2 to 4 seconds. Lightly use your finger or a soft cloth to rub the Muskol around each spot (be patient). You will see the marker start to lift off in 2 to 4 seconds. It works that fast! :-)) As soon as you stop rubbing the Muskol in, use a dry cloth to remove the stain. Once you have finished all the stains, your dryer drum should be clean.

Leave dryer door open for 2 hours to allow drum to dry.

Mix a small solution of laundry soap (a few drops will do) into 3 cups of hot water. Wash the drum with 4 to 6 old, clean rags. Once the inside of the dryer is completely cleaned, leave the rags inside the dryer and close the door.


Set the Dryer on "Air Fluff/No Heat" for 20 minutes.

Remove rags and inspect the drum.

Voila!!! All clean :-)


P.S. I tried all the other "suggested" remedies but nothing else worked, including: Bleach, Cooking oil, Varsol, Paint Thinner, GooGone, Tooth Paste, Nail Polish Remover, and Dry Erase Marker.
