How to Remove Marker Pen From Fabric: Place the stain face down on some paper towels, then with a sponge start rubbing pure alcohol into the area around the stain, and then apply it directly to the stain. After doing that just continue sponging the stain with alcohol, frequently maybe changing the paper towels underneath as this will result in the dabbing transferring the ink to the paper towels.

How to Remove Marker Pen From Skin: Using common cows milk is a great way of doing this. Simply fill a bowl with milk and soak the stained area of the skin in the milk by gently dabbing it onto the area of skin, but over the bowl to keep the mess down to a minimum. The milk will begin to turn the colour of the permanent marker. When the milk has significantly changed colour, refresh the bowl with new milk and repeat the process until the stain is removed.

How to Remove Marker Pen From Satin: Lay your towel or thick cloth down. This is to protect your surface area from any stains. Then Mix 1 tablespoon each of the milk and white vinegar with 1 tablespoon each of the borax and lemon juice. Then simply apply the mixture directly to your stain and let sit for 10 minutes, then dampen your sponge with cold water and dab the stain until it has been removed.

How to Remove Marker Pen From Clothes: Removing ink stains can seem tricky, but it’s not impossible. When removing ink stains that might have pooled on a garment, use a washable microfibre cloth to blot the mark. Don’t be tempted to wipe or scrub: just keep on blotting it until the ink dries and stops transferring off.
