Removing Wet Erase Marker Stains

June 8, 2015

While studying for an exam, I was using a green wet erase pen for my practice questions and I wrote on my new couch cover.

After trying some "Remove" stain remover, which did nothing, I looked at your site where someone had suggested nail polish remover. The only one I had was the nail


polish remover pads, which are like a towelette saturated with nail polish remover.

I tried one and it removed the wet erase green marker. I am so grateful to the person who suggested this! (You will need to scrub quite a bit, and then wash out the fabric afterward.)

A student used a wet erase marker on a file cabinet and it left faint shadows of the drawing. I've tried Windex, WD40, and Fantastik. Nothing has worked. All suggestions welcome.

Surprisingly, a (good quality!) dry erase marker can remove Sharpie marks from white boards and other non-porous surfaces...without the risks involved w/ using nail polish remover. I would try that first!
