How To Use WD-40 To Remove Permanent Marker
Whether it's an old storage container label or a whiteboard someone mistakenly wrote on with the wrong pen, WD-40 can remove permanent markers from any plastic surface.
Spray the WD-40 on the plastic surface, and wipe it clean with a paper towel or cloth. For glass, do the opposite and spray it on the cloth, then rub the surface until it's gone.
WD-40 can also help remove marker stains from fabric, including clothes and upholstered furniture, but it may also cause stains because of its oily nature.
However, WD-40 will work wonders for leather furniture or clothing and shouldn't leave any stains behind. Apply WD-40 to a paper towel and gently dab the marks.
To remove the marker from metal furniture, spray and let it sit for a minute. Wipe with a damp rag in circles until it smudges, then remove with a dry paper towel or washcloth.
If it doesn't all come off, repeat the process, and the stains should disappear. For laminate furniture, spray WD-40 onto the permanent marker and gently rub
it with a dry cloth.
