try wet wipes. i lifted black printer ink out of my mum's light green carpet with wet wipes, she thought the carpet was ruined till i gave it a try.

I don't know for sure, but the fact it is a dry-wipe one means I would try hoovering it first. My favourite stain remover is the chemdry one, you can get it off amazon

Hoover with hose, don't rub in with a brush

I'd start by contacting the manufacurers of the pen

You can get a spray to clean residue from whiteboards but it might spread the stain on a carpet.

soda crystals work wonders on stains

Thank you everyone. I'll suggest these things to my friend. It's so embarrassing.

Bicarb of soda, rub it in well.

Good luck, I hate to be the prophet of doom, but nothing shifts white board pen from cotton school dresses. Sadly including white board cleaner.
