Move Over Heloise: The Sharpie Cure

by Patrick on July 20, 2010

Illustration of PatrickYour six year old has just gained control of a permanent marker. Dark black scribbles have forever scarred your gorgeous Pottery Barn table. This is the end of either your beautiful dining room table or your personal sanity.


Well take a deep breath because I have the cure to removing permanent marker stains – a white board marker.

1. Using an expo marker draw over the sharpie stain.

2. Wipe with cloth.

3. Reapply expo.

4. Wipe again.

How a white board maker is able to erase a sharpie is one of the world’s greatest mysteries.
