There are several methods you can try to remove permanent marker from element tile. The first method uses a homemade, all-purpose solution to remove the stain from the Slate tile. For textured white tile, use toothpaste (or the all-purpose solution) to treat the stain.
Then, use a toothbrush or a scrub brush to remove the stain from textured Sandstone tile. If your tile is smooth, a dry erase marker may do the trick. Always remember to test each method on a small, hidden area before applying it to larger areas.
Purchase a black dry erase marker. You can purchase dry erase markers from your local pharmacy, arts and crafts store, or discounted retailer. Make sure to purchase a black dry erase marker as opposed to a colored one. Remember to test a small, hidden area first before using it on larger, affected areas.
Trace the affected area with the marker. Instead of tracing the entire stain, start by tracing a small part of the stain first. This method works best on smooth Impression tile. For textured casstle tile, the toothpaste or all-purpose solution may be more effective.
Wipe off the marker with a paper towel. Or you may use a rag or cloth to wipe off the traced sections. If the stain isn’t completely removed the first time, then re-trace the remaining spots with the dry erase marker. Wipe until the stain is removed. Use warm water and soap to clean the affected area after the stain is removed.
