Quick Tip – Marker Fun & Removal

This week on the Home & Family show on the Hallmark Channel, I found a timely tip on how to remove markers from wood floors. In my case the markers bled through thin paper onto the wooden bench beneath the masterpiece-in-the-making.

Ordinary toothpaste, not the gel types, rubbed gently into the marker with a soft rag, will remove markers of all types, even the permanent variety. I needed to add a bit of dampness to my rag in order to remove all the pigment.

It worked! I buffed the area with a soft cloth to remove any excess moisture or toothpaste.

Hallmark’s Home & Family show has a good mix of recipes, household tips, home improvements, garden segments, pet rescue highlights, and craft projects. In my area the show is aired twice a day and is also available On Demand.
