HELP!!! How to get permanent marker off vinyl?!?!?

Postby HillaryB » Wed Jul 20, 2011 9:04 pm

My younger daughter Jaylee decided to decorate her older Berjusa baby tonight. She used fine tip brown Sharpie to give him lovely freckles and swirls!!!!! :evil: Mostly on his nose, cheeks, earlobes, hands and feet and little on his leg. I used Winsor & Newton on it, and it lightened it to a yellow shade, but you can still see them. Would the acne cream trick work to lighten or remove them. He's super cute, I could paint him if I can't get them all the way off. Any suggestions??? :dunno:

I used to buy the washable markers for my grandkids to color with. But, that is not the question, about the acne cream - sometimes you have to smear it over the stain and lay it in the sun or daylight for several days. I use the north or east side so the intense sun doesn't get to the article, and have had great success with it. Some magic markers are very permanent though, usually those Sharpie ones. But well worth a try.

I use a product called RemoveZit from a place called Twin Pines of Maine. You can Google Twin Pines of Maine and his site will come up. This stuff is a paste and you put it on the spot and then the next day do it again. It takes a few applications to get it to work but it is wonderful stuff. Just be careful with it because it smells like a bleach of some sort. It does not change the color of the vinyl but it might remove the painted area that it touches. I have used this stuff for many years now and it work. He also sells stuff like D-Stinker to remove smells from vinyl dolls and also products to clean doll clothing. This man is a chemist and he wife collects antique dolls.

Hugs,
Diane

He is fixed!! The RemoveZit worked great, took about a week. I had to repaint his lips, as I removed the color cleaning the marker off, but he looks even better now ;) "Jack the pumpkin king" is all fixed, lol!!!
