Hi! I would suggest to soak it in cool water w/ hydrogen peroxide a teaspoon or two. Try not to rub it. Gently in your bathroom sink, lay the material down, and let it absorb the water and hydrogen peroxide. Don' t panic! After all is absorbed, let it still for about 5 minutes.. then, go and check, still don't rub! Tempting, yes.. don't. After that, slowly move the mixture through the shirt. Let sit another 5 minutes. Turn on the water/luke warm and rinse. Dry flat. This is the best way I've found to get any thing like this out.. other than going to CVS or RiteAide and trying those removable pen mark sticks. Those are a 50/50 chance! I hope either works! Good Luck! Have a nice night!

You're welcome. I hope it helped. Just a little.. the only other thing I can think of, is take her out to lunch, buy her a glass of wine or beer, and after picking up the check, the wine,... break the news, with some wild flowers, and a 50 bill in an envelope.. with a hand written note using the "guilty orange sharpie," showing your concerns! I wish you the best! Don't forget the wine and flowers!

Hi! Yippeee! :) :) :) I actually Jumped Up! Out Of My Chair and yelled... YIPPPEEE!!!!
Good for you! I'm doing laundry right now and I was, weird as this sounds, hanging them on the balcony to dry. When I came back in 2 minutes ago, I was drawn to the computer to see what was up before starting another Load! Hence, there you were! Thank you for letting me know! That is really sweet of you to follow through to me! Thanks a Bunch! Have a great day! Yippee! :)

I'm afraid there isn't any fix for this. Sharpie is permanent. I've even tried to bleach Sharpie out, and it simply doesn't work.

This actually works. But you may need to do it several times. Use RICE to wash it. Wash it with RICE. You heard me. Rice. Good luck, it will slowly fade away!

Shirts are cheap. Get a new shirt at oldglory.com or cafepress.com they have hundreds of shirt for cheap. The shirts at those web sites are mostly for male models.
