Indelibilty-Not Always A Good Thing

Sharpie Marker ink stain

Sharpie Marker ink stainOne of the great features of using a Sharpie Marker for console labeling is that, once it has dried, you can rub your hands across the label strip all night long and it never smudges.

That feature is not so great when the cap on the marker in your pocket comes off without you knowing it.

I can’t count the number of times I have ruined a pair of pants by having Sharpie ink leak through the pocket.

Here are some tips from the Marker manufacturer for removing Sharpie stains.

Clothes-Use hand sanitizer
Walls-Use toothpast
Wood-Use rubbing alcohol
Carpet-Use white vinegar
Furniture-Use milk
Glass-Use 1 part toothpaste and 1 part baking soda
