Question: How do I remove washable marker stains from clothes?
Here's how to remove washable marker stains from clothes:
Answer: Wet a cotton swab with rubbing alcohol and test the fabric to be sure the alcohol does not damage or discolor the material. Working from the outside of the stain to the inside, dab the spot with the swab. Change to a new swab as ink is absorbed to keep from redistributing the ink. Launder according to the fabric label directions.

If the garment is dry clean only, point out and identify the stain to your professional cleaner. If you are using a home dry cleaning kit, be sure to treat the stain with the provided stain remover before putting the garment in the dryer bag.
