    Default Help! How do you get whiteboard marker out of clothes and off walls?!!?

    My 2 year old has them on her clothes and on our walls - besides the obvious of removing the markers off her how do I get them out of her clothes and off our walls that she has accidently drawn on?

    I've tried those Preen stain sprays/Sard wonder soap etc on the clothes and it's still there

    On the walls we have tried scrubbing it with just water and a sponge - didn't know what else to use because we didn't want the paint to come off the walls.

    Help please!

    I sprayed hairspray on dds permanent marker marked t shirts, let it dry then wash, it should get it out. Also a little eucalytpus can work too or sard is good depends how much is there

    magic eraser on the walls, works a treat, my DD put perm marker on her walls and it came off with ease.

    As for clothes, I just keep soaking them in nappi san and it should come out, even if you have to soak a few times.

    Clothes ... I swear by Dylon #2 spot remover!

    Walls ... a weak solution of water and vinegar or a magic eraser

    HI,

    I know this is a bit late for thread, but decided to post it for future reference. My children decided to have a fight with whiteboard markers! My daughter got it on one of her best dresses and it was also on our woolen carpet. I rubbed the wet stain with a cake of sard wonder soap until it was nearly white with the soap then added a little more water and rubbed the dress against itself until the stain had dissappeared. Then washed it as usual. The carpet I rubbed the stain with the cake of soap and then rubbed it with a wet cloth. Both stains are gone. Yay!!!
