They make a solution to move stubborn dried marker from the wipe boards.... it smells like straight rubbing alcohol.
Try that.

I just had this same problem & I dont have rubbing alcohol (which I read on here as a good solution). So believe it or not, I used boiling hot water & a toothbrush & it got it out fairly quickly! I was shocked. There was a slight hint of color left behind so I tried then rubbing the spots with nail polish remover. I dipped the toothbrush into the nail polish remover & scrubbed the rest up

My son left a very large dry erase marker drawing on his carpet. I tried a name brand carpet cleaner and that just made it worse. I looked on the ThriftyFun website and a gentleman had suggested using Free and Clear All detergent mixed with water. It worked like magic. Thank you.

Dry Marker Stain from Carpet

Use hair spray until wet and dab lightly with dry cloth or paper towel, continue until gone, depending on how big the mark is it could use almost a whole tin of hair spray (12/05/2004)
