Any home remidies for getting hot pink sharpie out of a white skirt- other than stain remover? anything work??
I think you're screwed.
I am the mistress of stains, as a thrift shopper and sewer I've agressively experimented with all sorts of stain removers on all sorts of fabrics. Sharpies are so permanent I actually use them for decorating clothing, cloth shoes and fabrics.
If the skirt has any polyester in it, toss it, you'll never be able to help it. If it's all cotton and a true white white you can try dabbing it with a q-tip dipped in a 1-3 bleach and water solution to see if that helps - but it probably won't. As for actual stain removers, my all purpose favorite it Shout, but I don't think that will help you either.
You could also consider dying the whole skirt pink or some other color darker than the stain - but only if it's a natural fiber.
Spray and wash dual power. With two washes (no drying in between) it took a 2 or 3 inch circle of leaked Montblanc ink out of a white shirt of mine.
All you would have to do is bleach the sharpie part with a cleaning tootbrush or whatever you have really. then wash it.
My grandson put black sharpie marker all over his face twice. The second time he did it, I had some Watkins Organic Cleaner and put one drop on a wet wash cloth and it came rigtht off. You might try some of that. Also, regular ink comes out of white shirts if you use aerosol hair spray of any kind. Not pump, but aerosol hair spray. Spray it and then rub it in and rinse. You might have to do it several times. IF those two things don't get it completely out, then use Ritz Stain and Dye remover in a wash cycle to see if the rest will come out.
