I never really thought much about HOW TO REMOVE PERMANENT MARKER FROM BINDERS, but school supplies can be expensive, so when one of my daughters came home from school with her binders on the last day of school, I was dismayed to see permanent marker written over the front of them!
(Has your child come home from school with permanent marker on their binder?)
Since the binders were in otherwise great condition, I tried to find a way to remove the permanent marker from these binders.
HOW TO REMOVE SHARPIE
Of course, water did nothing to remove the permanent marker.
My daughter’s teacher had suggested hairspray. So I doused the front of the binder with hairspray and… nothing. I tried again, this time letting the hairspray sit for a while. Again nothing.
Frustrated and wanting to get this permanent marker off, I grabbed my trusted lemon essential oil thinking “What have I got to lose?”.
With a few drops of the lemon essential oil and a wipe of a paper towel, the permanent marker came right off!
I had my friend over when I was doing this and she was in complete shock. She could not believe it, so it made me think that there must be other people out there too who could use this handy tip.
Another one of my daughter’s binders came home with sticker residue. 2 drops of the lemon essential oil and a wipe of the paper towel and this binder was as good as new too.
Have you found any other ways to remove permanent marker? What tips do you have to reuse school supplies from year to year?
