Hey, we all have little things that make us want to pound our heads against the wall and scream, nothing wrong with that. Those markers are a pain in the rear end. Have you tried looking on pinterest for a magical solution? I’ve found a few good ones on there.

Maybe send him to school with a bunch of washable dry erase markers as a “gift” to the teacher/classroom? Do those exist?

MrsEME:  As a teacher who uses expo markers, I feel your pain! I actually had a student accidentally draw on his white shirt with one right before his school pictures were taken – his mom was probably not too happy but hopefully they will photoshop it out! LOL

MrsEME:  Hey, I worked at an elementary school all throughout college, and got a LOT of expo marker on my clothes from either kids or me just being clumsy. I just used a little Spot Shot Instant Carpet Cleaner, and the sucker came right now. Make sure to test a small section of the clothing before using a lot of it just to make sure the dyes of the fabric don’t fade. I’ve yet to come across a fabric it doesn’t get it out of though.

As for your kid getting marker on him – well, hopefully the stain remover will work as well for you as it has for me and this won’t be a PITA for you anymore.

You’re welcome! I hope the Shout Gel works, if expo says it works, I bet it will… right? lol. Good Luck!

MrsEME:  Ugh that’s obnoxious.  I feel you on the stains though.  Whenever my husband feeds our daughter she gets the food all over, I mean what do you expect from a 10 month old. But he has this really bad habit of taking the onesie off but not putting anything on it, or washing it out at least, so the stain sits there for 7-8 hours before I see it (when I get home) and by then it is so hard to get it out of her clothes.  And she loves eating carrots so it stains like crazy.

MrsEME:  I’m like you, I take her onesie off if it’s warm enough.  Or I put a big blanket on her and tie in the back (she hates bibs and refuses to eat if she has a bib on, the blankets throw her off). But it’s like my husband thinks nothings wrong, babies are supposed to wear stained clothes…I swear that man is so good at everything else, but clothes, it’s like no big deal to him.
