So what do I wake up to today. My 2 yr old has decided to color all over the carpet with BLACK PERMANENT MARKER. His birthday party is today and I have  a thousand things to do. It doesnt help when I TOLD DH to put the stuff in the junk drawer before I went to bed last night. Funny thing is he managed to pick the sciccors up that was sitting right next to the damn marker.

 

I've used alcohol and hairspray. DH used carpet cleaner and baby wipes (he thinks baby wipes have some magic solution in it to clean up every little thing)

 

Anyone have any other idea's. Im about to freak out here soon.

You need a carpet machine, even if it is a smalll one. You might try the woolite pod but I doubt it will work. It sounds like that markers has been sitting on the carpet for a little bit now and I hate to say it, but it probably won't come out. The best suggestion I can give you is to rearrange the furniture to cover the spot LOL. Sorry...

for the time being, get a large area rug until you can find a solution.

I know dawn and vinegar gets it off skin pretty well. My 2yr old drew hair on the baby with a green sharpie one morning. Not sure that will work with carpet though. :( good luck. And when you find the solution update us! I'm sure you're not the first or last! :)
