crayola magic marker

ok so tips on how the heck to get it off my daughter? i keep hiding them and she keeps finding them. today i finally moved them into the attic, but she has it all up her legs and i wiped her down when she first did it (was this morning guess i should have washed her immediately), then had her soak in the tub for 20 mins tonight, even tried to use rubbing alcohol and its still there. so any tips?

  • thats the sad thing, they are the washable kind!!!!!! its driving me nuts they just won't come off. i can't remove them totally b/c my 17 yr old brother needs them for school projects and such so like i said had to hide them in the attic, if he wants them he can climb to get them.

  • Try removing the ink with baby oil.

  • Baby oil, lotion, olive oil, more baths and wash good with soap and water.
