Permanent Marker Stain Removal from Refridgerator

Be careful when wielding a permanant marker or you may be tackling a kitchen cleaning task you didn't count on.Try using rubbing alcohol to try and remove the permanent marker from your fridge. You could also try using a fabric pre-wash spray or a color-safe bleach. Trying them on a non-visible area first to ensure that they do not damage the finish on your fridge. Saturating the stain with hair spray might also remove it.

I removed permanent marker ink from two sewing machines (my young granddaughters wrote their initials on them) with olive oil. It worked great! I tried other wouldn't budge, but when I tried the olive was magic!

The very best I have found to remove permanent marker is the same solvent that you use to clean your rifle and handgun barells.

rub toothpaste and the color will come out into it, and the paste has a mild abrasive in it. Just another one...
