Steps- How to remove permanent marker
1. Get a hold of any normal dry erase marker.
2. Test the dry erase marker on an inconspicuous area of the surface you want cleaned to see if it wipes off cleanly (but only after 1 minute or so that the ink can dry).
3. Draw over the entire dried sharpie mark with the dry erase marker. Give it 5+ seconds for the marker to dry completely, otherwise it will smear.
4. Wipe both marks away with an old rag or paper towel.
5. If the mark has been dried on for several days, repeat steps 3 and 4 more than once and perhaps with more pressure to wipe it off.

There is a product called Spot Shot at Wal-Mart. It says it is for carpets, but we have used it everywhere. It takes out permanent marker. It has an orange lid. A wonderful product, we have went through several cans over the years. It is quick and easy. I would suggest everyone keep a can in their pantry. Even takes red koolaid out of white carpet...easily. We love it. Just used it this week to remove a green stain left by modeling clay that was baked on in the sun onto a white plastic table.
