I need alcohol!!......(Sharpie removal methods please!!)

Title pretty much says it all. My two year old found a yellow Sharpie and decided to color various parts of her room, including her shirt and her brother's shirt. I used the rubbing alcohol to get the marks off of the crib, toys and bookshelf....but what about clothes? Is there anything that I can use to get Sharpie out of her clothes? Please help!!

We had something similar happen this week, I soaked in warm water laundry detergent and oxy bleach for like 4 hours and then washed. Came out clean. One of the little ones drew all over my DS's baby quilt, but it came out clean.

Don't know about clothes, but baby wipes will take sharpie off computer screens.
