How to remove Metallic Markers from fabric

Apply liquid dish soap to pretreat the stain. Rinse under cold water until no more color is being removed. Place the fabric over a pad of paper towels and saturate with rubbing alcohol, using a cotton ball to blot the stain. Change the paper towels and cotton balls as needed. If stain persists, rub a wet paper towel over Fels Naptha bar soap and apply the lather to the stain, work in a circular motion. Wash garment in hot water with laundry detergent and color safe bleach, rinsing in warm water. Allow to air dry. Repeat as needed.
