  • The Mr. Clean magic erase thing works wonders! It's got permanent marker off of bathroom walls at my old job, off the walls of my home and off my mom's coffee table. I'd say it'd work on a dashboard too.
    Good luck!

  • Magic eraser dipped into some gasoline. Then rub it on the stain.

  • I just saw a product which I'm going to tell my daughter about, and it showed permanent marker on the commercial. It's called Goof Off, and I hope it works, and I intend to buy it myself.

  • Hand sanitizer, but make sure whatever you use you condition it afterwards so you don't dry to out too much which could lead to cracks.

  • Goof off did not work and neither did the magic eraser.

  • have you tried hairspray....? i know this sounds weird, but i was told to use hairspray to protect my art....it works, but if you use too much of it, the colour runs and does the opposite of what i wanted to....i wonder if you used hairspray if maybe the colour would bleed so you could wipe it up, at least enought to fade it out eventually ????
