Permanent markers can be a blessing or a curse, depending on what you are writing on them with. Here is a household hack on How to Remove Permanent Ink Marker using Rubbing Alcohol! Permanent markers have a reputation for being able to do just what their name entails, permanently stay on anything that you write on them with. Obviously you bought one so that you could have the ink stay on whatever you chose to write on permanently, but sometimes, in life we make mistakes and they end up on other things that we would rather they not be on, so this trick is to help you to clean off whatever surface you would rather the marker not stay on permanently.

Sometimes in a hurry, people reach for the first pen they see and either write a message on a thin piece of paper that bleeds through onto something, leaving a permanent mark. Or you reach for a marker that looks just like a white board marker and when you go to erase it, you realize you have made a big mistake and used the permanent marker on the white board instead! Also, kids just love markers and don't know that they stay on surfaces forever, so they go on creating art all over your coffee table!

Now you don't have to worry at all if any of those things have happened to you! Simply take a prepackaged alcohol swab, the kind you find in your first aid kit, or even a rag or a paper towel and soak it in rubbing alcohol, and take it to the stain, and before you know it, the permanent marker will no longer be so permanent! How great is that? You don't need anything fancy, just plain old rubbing alcohol to the rescue! Head over to 'Home Hacks' by following the link in the section below for more!
