BTDT too. Black sharpie on TV and puter. Magic eraser ROCKS! (be VERY gentle and be sure to wet it first) But don't let your dc rub it on their skin as it'll cause a reaction.

Re: OMG!!!

There is a marker that you can buy that is made to take permanent marker off dry erase boards. I have used it many times and it works wonders! I would go to your local office supply store (maybe even walmart has one) and pick it up. I can't remember the brand that makes it (it's the same brand that makes tons of dry erase markers) GOOD LUCK! Post a pic if you can, too...

Re: OMG!!!

Alcohol is not screen friendly. It can ruin some types of screens so be careful.

Re: OMG!!!

You can also try Goof Off... but I send this suggestion with cation. I didn't get perm marker off using it, but It was on plastic and it worked my removing some plastic also. Goof Off melts Plastic!! So I would use caution on your screen. I don't know what your screen is made of. Just be sure to read the label. But if it's safe, I think that will do it.

Also, Goo Gone might work, but not sure about that one. But I think that one is a little safer.

Re: OMG!!!

The dry erase marker method should work - my first year of teaching, I wrote ALL over my dry erase board one day in permanant marker, then almost cried when I rea;lized what I'd done - luckily, one of the kids showed me how to draw over it with dry erase - it came right off. Just go over each line, draw right over it, then wipe it off right away with a paper towel.

Re: OMG!!!

Tracing over the offending marks with the dry-erase marker should do it fine. It worked when my little guy drew on my flat screen!
