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.(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.(2 to 4 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 :-)
Editor's Note: I tried all the other "suggested" remedies but nothing else worked, including:Bleach,Cooking oil,Varsol,Paint Thinner,GooGone,Tooth Paste,Nail Polish Remover, Dry Erase Marker...
