How To Remove Permanent Pen

via Wonder How To

Pencil Eraser – Another one to try, some say this works a treat.

Sunscreen – apparently some properties in the sunscreen can activate permanent pen removal. Give it a try!

Nail polish remover – this has great results. Use an Acetone base version and rub the stain.

White Fabric Removal – Hopefully you will never need this but if you do, just dilute a small amount of bleach in water. You may be lucky enough that the stain removes or loosens after the initial dip but if you need to soak, it’s important that you don’t overdo it as your material could start to come apart and dissolve. Once your stain is gone, thoroughly rinse and wash as usual.

Satin Trick – don’t despair! You can use a mix of vinegar, lemon juice, milk and borax. Add a tablespoon of each ingredient and apply to stain. Let it sit for 10 minutes. Using a slightly damp sponge, dab the material. It is important that you don’t rub. Be gentle and respectful of the fabric.

Towels and Sheets – use rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover. Apply with a cotton wool ball.

Clothing Citrus juice works well on clothing and won’t bleach. Fresh lime or lemon juice can be applied with a cotton wool ball to the stain. Dab until removed. If it’s a more delicate fabric dilute the citrus with water so that your solution is half strength. Wash off the minute the stain is removed.

Carpet – It’s a common victim of permanent pen. Rubbing Alcohol works a treat. Again, use the dabbing motion. If you rub, you will spread the stain. Hairspray is another good alternate.

Leather Upholstery – Hairspray is also great for Leather. Once stain and residue is removed, finish off by applying some Leather Conditioner.

Microfiber Upholstery – Hydrogen Peroxide is the secret to getting permanent pen off your microfiber lounge. Use a very small amount and scrub the stain gently for 10-15 minutes. Part 2 of the process is to add rubbing alcohol using a separate clean towel. Finish off by using a third clean towel that is dampened with water and Blot dry. Purchase Hydrogen Peroxide here

Furniture – Windex, rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover will work. Use a clean towel that is similar color to the item you are cleaning and dab at the stain. Don’t over soak the stain or you could end up with an ugly watermark. Pat dry excess and air dry. Purchase your Windex here
