How to Clean Silver Marker Pen

You can remove silver marker pen from virtually any surface with the following product, which is designed to treat the stain and safe for most common applications.

You Will Need:

  • Motsenbocker’s #3 Stain Remover
  • Clean white cloth or paper towels
  • Tooth brush (for soft or porous surface cleaning)

Steps to Remove the Marker:

  1. If applicable, test a small area for color fastness before you begin. While this stain remover is safe for most surfaces, it may discolor some.
  2. Spray #3 stain remover on the affected area. Cover the marker area completely.
  3. Wait 60 seconds for the remover to penetrate the marker.
  4. Wipe hard surfaces with a towel to clean the stain away. Use a toothbrush to work the stain remover into soft or porous surfaces.
  5. Rinse or wipe with cool water.
  6. Repeat as needed until the marker is completely removed.

Additional Tips and Advice

  • After the stain is gone, launder any machine washable items with your regular detergent. Double check the stain has been removed before drying, as drying will set the stain.
  • If removing the marker from upholstery, clean it as normal to remove any residue from the stain remover.

    Dusting polish. Simple. Dusting polish (Mr. Sheen for example) will lift it straight off without damaging the surface.
    Haven’t a clue why.
