Hey, try this! Today I got a manicure. :shrug: Tonight I made hard boiled eggs and I always put an X on them so everyone know those are the cooked ones. Well, I accidentally marked on my pretty new thumb nail with the darned Sharpie. I grabbed a Magic Eraser Sponge (lots of different brands, I just buy the cheap generic ones at my grocery store) which I use to clean my white counter tops. It took the Sharpie mark off nail polish, and the manicure looks good as new.

So, that's just a thought. Let us know!

I'll try the Fels Naptha this weekend and let you know. I'm back to work, kids start tomorrow and I'm pretty vegged out by the time I get home.

Removing permanent marker from vinyl wallpaper

Last week I just glanced at these posts, but now, alas, we need to get black permanent marker from wallpaper. There's a lot of it to remove, and the wallpaper is a neutral beige.

It is a pretty heavy wallpaper, vinyl I think, and seems scrubbable. So far we have sprayed with various household cleaners, and scrubbed with a Comet clone and a Soft-Scrub clone. Both the marker and beige wallpaper are getting lighter, so it looks like we're just taking a layer off the wallpaper. That'd be ok.

Other ideas? we're thinking alcohol, goo-gone, brillo......

I second the Mr. Clean eraser. For me, I had used alcohol first, then soaked my stained shirt with liquid laundry soap and all fabric bleach. That got most of it out. I later tried the Fels Naptha, but at that point it didn't seem to make much difference. It is now a very small and lightish blue stain, so I'm still wearing the shirt.
