How do I get permanent marker out of jeans?

Sharpie Marker On Jeans

Use rubbing alcohol. When the alcohol starts to work and has sat for a minute or two and the pen starts "running", but before the alcohol dries, pour some liquid laundry soap into the area. Then brush it in with an old toothbrush. You may have to repeat this.


If for some reason this does not work, you can try fingernail polish remover. Never use the dryer, hot water or even an iron on any stain until it is completely gone, because heat can "set" the stain and make it harder to remove.

The reason hairspray can sometimes work is because of the alcohol it contains. At most fabric stores they sell a wonderful brand of specialized stain-removers. In their display they have 6 or 7 different types of stain-removers to choose from depending on your exact stain (grease, mustard, pen, grass, etc.).
