How do I get permanent marker off the fabric in the seat of my car?

My son accidentally dropped a permanent marker in the backseat of my car and it made a sizable mark. How do I get rid of this?

Although permanent marker is tough to get off your seats, it’s definitely doable! Here’s what you need to do:
  • Blot the stain with a paper towel or cloth
  • Spray down with hair spray and let dry
  • Wipe the stain with a cloth
  • Repeat as necessary
If this isn’t working as well as you want or you want to jump-start the process like you’d jump start a car battery, soak a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol and repeat the process.
Since you have kids,you might want to make sure that your car insurance covers any eventuality or issue that might come up—with things like MedPay and high coverage limits, you can protect your little bundles of joy (or terror). Just make sure to use the Jerry app to get customized quotes from over 50 different providers so that you can get the best rate possible.
Enjoy your clean car!
