Removing Permanent (Sharpie) Marker With GOO-GONE

Use "Goo-Gone" to remove stubborn permanent marker from fabrics! I was amazed how well

this product worked. Just dab on, let sit for a minute or two and dab off. The stains


were completely gone! I wrote to them thanking them for saving my rocker set and they

sent me a complimentary gift! It works great on all sticky surfaces and floors, too

(scuffs, etc.)

Goo Gone does not remove permanent Sharpie. (11/10/2005)


Removing Permanent (Sharpie) Marker With GOO-GONE

I read somewhere that milk will take off permanent marker on skin, but that didn't work

that well for me. I also read to use bleach. That did the trick. It didn't take long at

all. I had it all over my hands so I just poured a small amount of bleach in my hands

and rubbed them until the marker disappeared. But of course you need to wash with soap

and water afterwards, and the bleach smell does linger for awhile, but it's better than


having marker all over you. I think if you dip a cloth in bleach and rub over the area

that should do the trick also. Just be careful to not get it on your clothes or it may

ruin them.
Good luck. (07/04/2006)

My granddaughter got permanent marker all over her hands when tracing them and doing

some drawings. After trying numerous things, we discovered that Dawn dishwashing liquid works

great and in a matter of seconds. What a find! (08/21/2006)

My son drew with a Sharpie on our LCD computer screen. I tried some of the remedies

suggested and none worked until I grabbed for the Windex. Sprayed a little on a cloth


and voila, it was gone. (10/08/2006)

My son wrote using a BIC permanent marker (much like a Sharpie). He wrote on a 50 year

old, wood children's chair, a 10 year old rocking chair, the closet doors, and his

white, laminate shelfs. The Goo-Gone didn't touch it, the Off didn't work. Alcohol

removed some of it. My husband used Stain Stick and a wet rag, which worked pretty well.

I went to get the Mr. Clean eraser and that removed the rest of it. (11/18/2006)

Alright I have this skateboard and all my friends ruined it with this silver Sharpie.

Nail polish remover doesn't work on the silver. It sounds weird, but oven cleaner got it

off. (02/06/2007)

Goo-gone is a good stain remover, but for Sharpie permanent marker remover for all non-

fabric items, a "tried and proven" way for complete removal is: WD-40! (03/20/2007)

My son got red Sharpie permanent marker on our camel colored microfiber duvet cover. I

tried Shout first and it didn't touch it. I then tried Zout and the red stains

immediately began to break up and with some rubbing practically disappeared. I then ran

the duvet cover through a regular wash cycle and it came out completely clean.

My son drew all over everything with a silver Sharpie marker this morning. we're talking

TV, our new laptop computer, desk, V Smile, wall, himself, rocker and ottoman, and a


picture. We tried everything we had on hand. The best thing we found that worked on all

of it, was the Mr Clean Magic Eraser. Unbelievable how well it worked! (06/03/2007)

Removing Permanent (Sharpie) Marker With GOO-GONE

My 3 yr old just wrote on a wall with a Sharpie. I tried Goo Gone, but it didn't do

anything. So I went on the internet and came to this site and saw someone say to try hand

sanitizer for removing Sharpie marker. I didn't have any, but all that is in it is

alcohol. So I grabbed some rubbing alcohol and it came right off. No stain and it didn't

even take off the paint! Try it and I promise you it will work! (08/31/2007)

I just used Charmin Freshmates, adult flushable wipes (I use them to take makeup off)

anyway, my son got black permanent marker on the suede sofa and I got it off! I was so

mad when it happened, and I searched before I tried to clean it. I gently wiped the mark

over and over, (not constantly using the same spot on the wipe). Whew! (07/11/2008)

My 2 year old put two long Sharpie marks on our brand new sofa. Our "fabric protection"

wouldn't cover sharpie marks. After reading this, I tried baby wipes and toothpaste and

they both seemed to help the stain. It's not completely gone yet, but it's a huge

improvement. (10/31/2008)

We just Googled this website because one of my co workers just wrote on a whiteboard

with a black Sharpie. Another co worker wrote over the top of it with the dry erase

marker and erased it with the eraser and it worked! This is no bull. We were about to

try the Goo Gone or Magic Eraser, but didn't need to.

I used polish remover and a cotton ball to remove black permanent marker from a satin

multi-colored comforter. It work like a charm. I just blotted gently until it vanished.

My son is so lucky. (12/22/2008)

Careful that Goo Gone is oily and may leave an oil stain on the fabric. Then try

detergent to remove the Goo Gone. (02/13/2009)
