How to Remove Permanent Marker from Furniture

I purchased an old table at a yardsale that someone had discarded because a child had marked on its surface. My father restored that table by following these steps:

  1. Before you begin, test the paste on a part of the furniture that's not normally visible. You want to insure that the paste won't strip the paint or finish from the wood.

  2. Use white paste, not the gel, and put a small amount directly onto the furniture. With either a soft bristle toothbrush or a soft rag, start making circular motions and rubbing the paste into the marked area.

  3. Be patient. It may take several applications before the marker is completely removed.

  4. When the paste has taken on the color of the marker, wipe clean and repeat step two until the marks are no longer visible.
