In this Instructable I show you how to remove pen marks from (almost) all surfaces.

For those with children this will be a very recognizable challenge. Your daughter or son got hold of a pen and walked through the house with all its consequences ...

Fortunately, this life hack offers the solution in many cases! In deodorant, bactericidal substances such as triclosan or alcohol are used. For this life hack to work, you need deodorant that includes alcohol.

Supplies

  • Deodorant (that includes alcohol)
  • Cloth

Step 1: Leather Couch

Spray a little deodorant on the surface to be treated. To make sure that the deodorant does not affect the material or leave stains, you can first test on a spot that is not visible.

Let the alcohol work for a few seconds and then wipe the surface thoroughly with a dry cloth. You can repeat this process if there are still residues.

Step 2: Floor Tiles

Spray a little deodorant on the surface to be treated. To make sure that the deodorant does not affect the material or leave stains, you can first test on a spot that is not visible.

Let the alcohol work for a few seconds and then wipe the surface thoroughly with a dry cloth. You can repeat this process if there are still residues.

Step 3: Laminated Wood

Spray a little deodorant on the surface to be treated. To make sure that the deodorant does not affect the material or leave stains, you can first test on a spot that is not visible.

Let the alcohol work for a few seconds and then wipe the surface thoroughly with a dry cloth. You can repeat this process if there are still residues.
