To remove a permanent marker stain from wood furniture, there are a few options available. You could try WD-40, non-gel toothpaste, or possibly baby wipes. Also, I'd suggest a bit of alcohol on a white cloth or paper towel, or visiting an office supply store to get a commercial felt pen ink remover. I would also recommend trying the method you choose on an inconspicuous area of the wood first to ensure that it doesn't damage the finish.
My 3 year old wrote with red marker on our hardwood floor! I tried baby wipes and that wasn't working. I switched to alcohol and that worked! The marks are gone! Thank you so much.
We tried Goo Gone on the marker on the furniture, followed by alcohol and it looks good as new.
My Grandson colored on a white piece of paper that bled through onto my beautiful wooden table. I took a "dry eraser marker pen" (used on white boards) and scribbled directly over each line. In a few minutes I simply wiped it with a paper towel and the markings were gone.
Sharpie on our most expensive piece of furniture--alcohol took it off immediately! Thanks
WOW..my coffee table was ruined with my kids markers..I had tried everything (I thought) then as a last resort before throwing it away I googled for a solution and this wesite came up. So I tried the toothpaste and I was AMAZED>>>IT ACTUALLY WORKS!!!!!!!! A scotchbrite sponge, a little water, toothpaste and very little elbow grease...and the pen was all entirely GONE...my table honestly is back to new,...THANKYOU!!!
I have had good luck a magic eraser(any brand will do). Took the sharpie right off the wood with no damage and no hard scrubbing
my dauter used a black permanate maker on her bed and we tried organic tooth paste and wiped it right out! I dont know how but I did thank you so much !
Aerosol hairspray removes permanent marker...
My son was completing a project and used permanent marker on my wood dining room table.I used Arm and Hammer toothpaste. Mark disappered after vigorously scrubbing for about 5mins. I recommend it for tough stains. Good luck.
