How to Use Sunscreen Spray to Remove Permanent Marker

Have you ever accidentally used a permanent marker on a whiteboard or other non-permanent surface? If so, you know how frustrating it can be to try to remove the mark. But what if we told you there's a simple solution that you might already have in your beach bag? That's right, sunscreen spray can actually help remove permanent marker!

Here's how:

Step 1: Spray the sunscreen on the marked area. Take the sunscreen spray and spray it directly onto the marked area. Be sure to cover the entire mark with a good amount of sunscreen.

Step 2: Let it sit for a few minutes

Once you've sprayed the sunscreen, let it sit on the mark for a few minutes. The longer you let it sit, the better the results will be.

Step 3: Wipe away the sunscreen and marker

Take a clean cloth or paper towel and wipe away the sunscreen and marker. You should see the marker start to lift away from the surface. If the mark is particularly stubborn, you may need to repeat steps 1-3 a few times.

Step 4: Rinse the area with water

Once you've removed the marker, rinse the area with water to remove any leftover sunscreen or marker residue.

And that's it! Using sunscreen spray to remove permanent marker is a simple and effective solution that you can try at home. Just be sure to test a small, inconspicuous area first to make sure the sunscreen doesn't damage the surface you're working on. With this trick up your sleeve, you'll never have to worry about permanent marker mishaps again.
