What can I use to remove dry erase marker stains from wood?
Kira from Milwaukee, WI
Try the Mr Clean Magic Eraser. That sponge works great. Haven't found anything it won't remove yet.
Wow. I'm glad I found this thread. I just used a magic eraser to get marker off my dining room tabletop after trying vinegar, ammonia cleaner, water, dry erase board cleaner and anything else I could lay my hands on.
The magic eraser took some scrubbing but it's gone.
All you guys are missing it. What you do is this:
1. buy an erasable white board marker that is throw-away, as you'll ruin it here. Buy two to be safe and make sure you have enough to do the job.
Nail polish remover works on my white board wood.
I'm only a teen myself and annoying little brothers drew on my wooden do not disturb sign and after screaming and scrubbing with water and soap I don't know how but after I covered the stain with Vaseline ( I used lip Vaseline but that doesn't matter ) left it for a minute then used a pencil eraser to rub it off, I rubbed for five minutes and the stain is completly gone! I Hope This helps
I had accidentally wrote on my wooden dresser with a dry erase marker when I was writing on my board and I tried all kinds of things then I just decided to put hand sanitizer on it and let it sit for a minute then I rubbed it with a pencil eraser and it came right off !.
