Hello Every one!
I just wanted to pass on the trick that I use to get rid of pen and permanent marker stains off clothing, plastic, wood and even leather!
All I do is use hair spray! Not the aerosol cans, however the spray bottles. I had a plastic misting bottle that had some kind of mixture in it (not harsh) and I needed that bottle to be able to mist my plants, so I washed the permanent marker off with hair spray. That marker had been on that bottle for about 3 to 4 years! and the bottle was in the sun room, and withing seconds the markings were gone.
For clothing, I simply saturate the spot with the hair spray then wash the article as per normal!
