How to Remove Permanent Marker Stains from Any Surface

If your little ones left permanent marker traces everywhere, learn how to get rid of them with simple solutions. Even though the marker is permanent, it can be cleaned, whether it is on the wall, carpet, furniture, or floor.

Marker drawings on upholstery or other fabric

Marker stains on sofa upholstery or clothing can be removed with rubbing alcohol or glass cleaners containing alcohol or acetone. Acetone is only meant for whites, while the fixing spray is used for sofas.

Permanent marker stains on the walls

It is the white walls that children love to draw on when they are in the mood for drawing. Even large maker stains can be cleaned with fixing spray or toothpaste, depending on your wall color. Alternatively, you can use lemon juice to buffer the drawings with a clean, white cloth.

Permanent marker stains on wooden surfaces, flooring or furniture

If you find permanent marker stains on your furniture, use toothpaste (not gel), white rubbing alcohol, or peanut butter. These easy solutions will help you erase the stains until all traces are completely removed. Make sure you test them on a very small area before applying them to avoid damaging the wood’s color or gloss.

Marker stains on carpets

Using rubbing alcohol is the simplest method to remove marker stains from carpets, but hairspray can also be effective. Use a small amount of alcohol to gently remove the stains.

Marker stains on glass

The scribbles left by permanent markers on glass objects and mirrors can easily be cleaned with white toothpaste mixed with baking soda.

Marker stains on computer screens

Modern screens, phones, and tablets, have delicate surfaces that are difficult to clean when smeared with permanent markers. You can try erasing the marks with baby wipes first, and if that doesn’t work, try toothpaste. Be careful, though! To remove stains, apply toothpaste over them and let it work for a few minutes; then wipe them with a damp microfiber cloth.
