Help! How do I get permanent marker off of a dryer??

Okay, I finally did something stupid myself. Usually it's the kids or Dh that leaves markers, pens, gum, chapstick, that kind of stuff in their pockets and
it ends up in the laundry. Well, it was me this time. I left a bright pink Sharpie marker on our bed and then decided I was going to change the sheets. I washed it and dried it without ever realizing it was there - until I took the sheets out of the dryer! Bright pink spots and stripes all over my sheets and all over my dryer! I'm not really concerned with the sheets - they are old anyway, but I'm afraid those pink spots will come off on other clothes I put in the dryer - do you think it's safe to leave them there? If not, what can I use to take them off? We're talking about a lot of pink spots here.

Maybe try the magic eraser? It's worth a try. Poor you!

Try calling the Sharpie company. DH let the kids get black Sharpie all over my brand new dining room table ... he called Sharpie and they said to use a small amount of rubbing alchohol. It worked.

The other day I accidentally used a sharpie on my white erase board (picked up the wrong marker) My husband told me to use the eraseable marker over the sharpie then rewipe. I thought the idea was stupid and wouldn't work but kudo's to my husband it worked like a charm. How do men know these things?? So try that.

Our DD colored our linen closet doors and bathroom tile with a sharpie. The magic eraser worked like a charm. It does a wonderful job of removing those stubborn marks!!

I was going to suggest rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover. The Magic Eraser might work too.

But as others have suggested, call Sharpie.

Magic Eraser

Got Sharpie off of a vinyl floor. The thing's amazing.

Rubbing alcohol and nail polish remover are flammable. Would it be safe to use them in a dryer?
