What is the best way to remove permanent marker stains off plastic (without ruining the plastic)?

Report as

I just discovered that an OLD bottle of Avon skin so soft, I've had it for many years, does a stellar job of removing permanent ink from plastic. I tried it because it also works for removing sticky label remains, and ants will not cross over an area that has just been wiped with it. Amazing stuff! Just put a dab on a paper towel and rub. I wonder what else it is good for.

I'd be wondering what kind of chemicals are in it that are strong enough to remove permanent marker!

I don't know if I'd be using it on my skin!

You can remove permanent marker on plastic using a nail polish remover, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, baking soda toothpaste, rubbing alcohol, or hairspray (the cheaper the better). Just cover the marker stain with the product you have chosen, let it set for several minutes, and then wipe the surface clean. After this, repeat if it is necessary.

Believe it or not, the best way to remove permanent marker is to go over it with a non permanent one. Like a dry erase marker. Them wipe both away. Workers like a charm!

Actually, i got some blue permanent marker on my IPAD but actually, a tiny tiny amount of sunscreen will do just rub onto the area and use a wet tissue to wipe it off!
