Permanent marker stains are a big nightmare for any mother, because most kids use them in difficult-to-clean areas such as parquet, walls or sofas.
Although it seems incredible, permanent marker isn’t so permanent anymore, because it can easily be removed with the following tips:
For laminate, marble or granite countertops, you need:
– a cotton pad
Apply acetone on the stain and rub it well with the cotton pad.
For walls, you need:
– hair spray
– paper towels
Apply hair spray over the stained wall, and then wipe vigorously with dry paper towels.
For permanent marker stains on carpet, you need:
– rubbing alcohol
– a dry cloth
Pour rubbing alcohol directly on the stain, and then wipe the stain with a dry cloth. If the stain won’t disappear completely, spray the stain with hair spray and rub with an old toothbrush.
For permanent marker stains on clothes, you need:
– baking soda
– lemon juice
To remove marker stains on clothes is it best to do it when it’s fresh. Apply phosphorescent marker over the stain, and then sprinkle baking soda over the stain. Rub well the area, and then put lemon juice and continue to rub the stained area. Let it act for 5 minutes and wash it with warm water.
