Unhappy Help! Permanent Marker Stains

I would greatly appreciate any help anyone can give me. How do I remove permanent marker stains(like from a Sharpie Marker) off my linoleum floors? The marks have been sitting there about 2 months now.

Permanent marker tends to be, well, permanent. The longer it sits, the harder it is to budge. Try rubbing alcohol, you will probably need to rub quite a bit, if you get any results at all.

You dont

Well if you do let me know. Unless you have a small piece of that vinyl and you can have an installer come out and repair it. Which means he would cut out the marked and piece it with the leftover. Thats a long shot though cause I dont think you have a match but if you do great and that would be the way to go..good luck

Try charcoal lighter fluid. No, not to set it on fire, but let it sit on the stain for a couple of minutes, then wipe up. The lighter fluid has NAPTHA in it and it usually will do the trick.

Goo-gone or mineral spirits?
