My 7yr old Dd is constantly coming home from school with White board marker pen on her clothes. I've tried everything to shift it and nothing works. I'm sick of having to buy her new school blouses etc. Anyone have a solution to this problem?

Nothing shifts it.
I've tried everything in the house and DHs shed. I've even bought a bootle of white board cleaner.

It is evil.

Startail - I agree it is evil stuff.

Yes - tell her to stop rubbing the whiteboard marker off with her shirt and/or provide her with a rag to use.

search MN there was a thread a few months back on this. dont know if it was hairspray. milk gets most pens out of clothing but havent yet tried it on whiteboard pens. neat meths gets most stuff out even nail varnish.

I've been using asda own brand stain remover gel- it's a big bottle with blue label

I slap some onto the marker stain and leave for 10 mind before washing and it seems to lift it.

I'm still at a loss as to why it happens. Ds comes home with it on his back- they must draw on each other! And it's a light grey jumper!

I have given up trying to get rid of it. Ds goes to school in his stained sweaters and shirts blush

I can answer the "why it's on his back"...

It's a squeeze past the board and A.N. Other person or table/chair manoeuvre.
