Permanent Marker Remover

READY IN: 3mins
Recipe by Elaniemay

Found this online after my kids were coloring with a permanent marker and it bled through onto my new kitchen table. Worked wonders! I have used this since with the same results after my 1 yr. old marked on my desk. The permanent markers are now kept out of reach.....unless of course he stacks things up and climbs onto them as he has been doing lately... Cooking time is setting time.

This worked pretty well....on the newer marks it worked better than on the ones that have been there for a while! Thanks for posting a very helpful hint!
