  • O Shi7!!! you may have to call the manufacturer! Microfiber is meant to turn loose of stains using only bottled water..... but permanent marker?? OMG I would be freaking out too.

  • A product called Amodex may take it out..... it is recommeded by Sharpie to remove ink stains.. You should be able to get it at Home Depot, Tru Value or Hobby Lobby.... but read the instructions and contact the company that makes the marker he used, they'll have suggestions.

  • I found thid product called Oil Eater, it takes everything out, even permanent markers. My daughter's son got it all over the 2 new recliners she got for Christmas and they look new again. The greatest stuff I have ever used. I washed my husband's wiork jeans, that had been laundered for 5 years, and all of the oil and stains came out and they had been dried in the dryer . Love this stuff, You can buy it online.It is biodegradable, non-toxic, and non-corrosive.
