Ughh…. It happened. My sweet boy accidentally grabbed the permanent marker instead of a washable marker when he decided to make Dad a card. The sharpie marker bled through the paper and all over my kitchen table. After some research I learned that it is pretty easy to remove permanent markers from hard surfaces.
Today I wanted to show you how to Remove Permanent marker from Furniture:
The magic erasers are simply magical! A friend of mine told me to try magic erasers and I was truly shocked. I guess I can add this to my pretty awesome list of uses for Mr. Clean Magic Erasers. By the way, you can often find Magic erasers for cheap on amazon. Sometimes you will even find coupons for them.
As many of you know I was shocked at how clean my stove top got when I used these magic erasers, so I’m pretty excited about this new use for these magical yet weird sponges. 🙂
How to Remove Permanent marker from Furniture:
Below you will see my beat up table. Ignore the scratches – I have 8 kids, I’m ok with scratches. 🙂 See the beautiful Sharpie marker that bled through the table? Lots of beautiful markings….
After wetting a magical eraser and a quick scrub of just a minute or two the permanent marker was gone! It was that easy!
I would be cautious that you don’t take off the finish of the table, but it literally didn’t take much scrubbing so I’m thinking the finish is just fine. 🙂
I just want to warn you – just in case.
Have you tried this handy trick before? I am curious what else you use magic erasers for.
Also… if you are curious, you can find the off brand of magic erasers on amazon for much less.
