Is it possible to remove whiteboard marker from school tshirts? Dd is in reception. She seems incapable of using a marker without drawing on her tops. Even the tshirts under pinafores still end up with marker on them.

Try that alcohol hand sanitiser gel on the stain then launder as hot as poss with Vanish Oxi for whites.
Fingers crossed!

Dr Beckmans ink stain remover works but you have to apply it before washing the clothes! I just used to rub it in with my finger nails before washing them as normal.

I never found anything else that worked.

Nope. My 2 have yellow tops and i've had 8 yrs of shitty coloured sleeves.

Don't use hot water on stains as it sets them. Cold or just warm is best.
