rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover will help, but i doubt you'd want to use that on baby

Try an oil like Olive oil. If you super hydrate the skin sometimes that works.

All I know is rubbing alcohol: but idk if that's safe ?




My 3 yr old free "a's" all over her body with blue sharpie. I was able to get some off with baby wipes, but it was "fresh" still

OMG, my worst nightmare.



You could try hand sanitizer. Just blot some on, rub it, wash it all off.

Thanks guys, yeah I'm nervous about using rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover so I've got some vaseline on it right now.



Yeah it's funny and a headache all in one. Apparently the Ottoman to the glider needed coloring too :roll:

What was it a tattoo of? Have you taken a picture yet? At least your oldest wanted to include her sister, right?

I have used alcohol, baby oil, and nail polish remover to remove sharpie in the past. My brothers took a sharpie to my cat (he is a tuxedo cat and they were trying to make him all black) and baby oil got it out of his fur, and before you ask my brothers were 14, 17, and 19 at the time they decided to color the cat.

They're idiots. I made them pay the vet bills after I had to rush him to the vet for respiratory distress from breathing sharpie fumes after they colored his nose. He's a happy healthy 4 year old now though and looks very cute as a tuxedo cat without his white parts sharpied black

This is why I keep the sharpies hidden from DSS. But he's seven. I feel like at 19 they should be able to handle it...
