  1. Ok seriously---I've done this so many times. Get out some rubbing alcohol and dab lightly on the material. Then, get some biz (at your local "get it all" store) and pour the biz (liquid works best, but the powder is fine too) on the stain and let it soak overnight. Then throw it in the washer with cold water and wallah!

  2. Hi Kathleene,
    I teach Kindergarten and have been marked by many a whiteboard marker! The one tool I have found that gets it out is "Goo Gone" let it soak a bit, and wash. Works for me and hopefully for you as well!

  4. I'm also glad you asked about this. I have only gotten marker on my clothes once, but I'm always worried about my kiddos' clothes. We use dry-erase markers almost everyday. I'm sure their parents would love to know how to get out those stains.

  5. Did you know they now make "washable dry erase" CRAZY! They are a little pricey, but so worth it! A parent found them at Target {a teacher's BFF} :)

  8. I know this is late in the game....but MURPHY'S OIL SOAP. Put it in warm water and soak clothing. Add some directly to the stain and scrub with a toothbrush and then let soak some more. Bonus...your sink will be squeaky clean!
