Remove permanent marker from fabric- use #999 for Dr. Bronner’s. How do I know this works? My 2 year old got a hold of a black Sharpie. I was sitting with him allowing to use it under my supervision. He was coloring nicely on some paper laying on the floor. I went in the other room to use the bathroom, was gone maybe 1 minute, and came back in to find him perched on the couch coloring the cushion (did I mention he was 2 I had seen this DIY remedy floating around the web months ago (credit to H3idiho Designs) & took mental note. As soon as I saw the marker mess I ran to the medicine cabinet for the Peroxide, grabbed a spray bottle, mixed equal amounts of Peroxide w/ Dr. B (any one should work, this is Tea Tree), sprayed the mess down & let it sit for 1 minute. The marker appeared to disappear immediately, but I wasn’t totally sure until it dried- sure enough, it was gone without a trace! Would the Dr. B or Peroxide alone have done the trick? Possibly, but I wasn’t up for experimenting. As for my sweet little 2 year old- he now knows he doesn’t get black markers after the couch incident

    This happened to me! My three and two year old decided to sharpie each other! Yes – beards, mustache and eye brows! Wish I had this remedy then.
