How to Remove Permanent Marker from Wood

Last week my grandchild was coloring on a sheet of paper on the dinner table. However he wasn’t using a crayon. Or a pencil. No. He was using a PERMANENT MARKER that had seeped through the paper. My wood table was covered in marker! I tried water, 409, Awesome, everything I could think of. Nothing worked. What didn’t I think of — toothpaste! Yup. I googled it after trying numerous cleaning items I had under my sink.

I came across this website: https://spotremoval.coit.com/how-to-remove-marker-from-wood-floors

What a life saver! I took an old rag, dipped it in warm water, and with my finger just applied toothpaste to all the markings. I applied a little elbow grease as I rubbed each of the markings away!
