To remove a Sharpie stain, wet the stain, and use a stain remover-soaked paper towel to rub the stain out. You need water, paper towels, and either hairspray, rubbing alcohol or milk.
- Check the manufacturing label
Read the manufacturing label for restrictions on stain removers as well as specific instructions on removing a stain. If the label does not give instructions, test the stain remover on a hidden area first.
- Wet the stain, and lay it face down on paper towels
Use water to wet the stain. Place paper towels on a hard surface. Place the stain face down on the paper towels, and press down firmly.
- Apply the stain remover to the stain
Wet a clean paper towel with your choice of stain remover. Rub the paper towel on the underside of the affected area until the stain disappears.
