Pimp My Ride


While I was out grocery shopping, I walked past the front of my car and found that it had been decorated in permanent red ink. I thought, “AHHHHHH!!!!! How long has THAT been there?!!” While grey cars don’t show dirt, they show red ink really well. Due to the writing style, I suspect it was my 4 year old. I don’t know where she got the pen, and I can’t figure out when she did this. At least she didn’t draw racing stripes down the sides, but that’s where the scratches are from the bicycle handles. I think Santa will be adding a check mark for her on the naughty list.

    ahh omg.  im pretty sure if you havent fixed this already you can use dry erase marker to get it off.  i remember in high school with the dry erase boards if someone used a permanent marker they just went right over it with the dry erase and it erased right off.  good luck!

    Rubbing alcohol removed almost all pen but test a small patch to make sure it doesn’t damage the paint too. Then clean the area with water to get rid of the residue.

    Home Depot sells an ink remover that sometimes works on permanent marker.

    Good thing it was a Ford. If it had been any other car especially a Dodge or a Honda, MOTHER OF GOD.

    Odd tip, but Flexall 454, the muscle ache ointment, will cut right through permanent marker like it was water color.
    My youngest decided to decorate my beige keyboard with blue marksalot….came right off. Doesn’t harm the paint or surfaces either. Just don’t rub your eyes until you’ve washed your hands well.
