  • Try hairspray - soak the spot with hairspray and blot up with a paper towel. I got sharpie out of my MIL's carpet this way. If you had a whole marker burst, it may take a lot, so go get some of the cheap stuff!

  • Greased Lightning will get it out, or any other stain for that matter.

  • IN THE DOLLAR STORE THERE IS A SPRAY THAT TAKES THAT OUT. CHECK DOLLAR TREE. I CANT REMEMBER THE NAME OF IT BUT THE BOTTLE IS CLEAR AND THE LIQUID IS YELLOW.

  • I use Sol-u-Mel. It is naturally derived, biodegradable, non-caustic. It has actually removed permanent marker and paint drips on wood that was years old! I love it!
