Cleaning Tip #1

Real Estate Agent with Realty Mark Associates RS279899

Getting Sharpie marker stains out:


Ever go to a listing and see in the kids room that they've decided to decorate the walls themselves? With markers? And paint doesn't cover over it?


I don't remember where I got this, but it does work.

Things you will need:

  • Tube of white toothpaste....gel doesn't work.
  • 2 clean dry rags
  • A bowl of warm water

Apply the toothpaste to the area. Use a damp,clean rag and wipe. Dry off with clean dry rag.


This also works on kitchen floors and anything plastic.

I have never tried and will remember next time  to use this method.

Good to know Liz. Maybe someday this will come in handy for me. I don't think I could forget something like this.
