Let’s continue my efforts to look on the bright side, shall we?
Recently, my son found his way to the only permanent marker yet to be banished from our home.
Upon finding said marker, he feverishly decorated my kitchen and himself.
After weeks of tweeting, googling and testing products, I have ultimately gotten the marker out of everything. AND due to his efforts, I now have a nice little (and pin-able) list of how to get permanent marker out of pretty much anything in your home.
From clothing and pretty much everything else: hand sanitizer
and if that doesn’t work…
From carpet: white vinegar, pour on area and cover with a towel, gently blot with towel, do not rub (courtesy of @stayathomebabe)
From wood cabinets: rubbing alcohol
From a stove: white vinegar
From a wood floor: took lots of work but I used rubbing alcohol to take out most of it, then tea tree oil took out more, then toothpaste got the last of it out.
Here’s the tea tree oil I like best. It’s gentle enough to use on skin but also works great on household surfaces.
From a 3 year-old: tea tree oil worked instantly and is non-toxic so I was able to use it to remove the marker on his face (he drew “tiger eyebrows” of course).
Now for How to remove the urge to draw all over your Mom’s kitchen with a permanent marker from your child? I’ll have to let you know when I find the answer to that one.
Don’t hold your breath.
