    If it can be removed, then its not really permanent, is it?
    Sorry to be unhelpful, but the little devil on my left shoulder wouldn't leave me alone until I typed this.

    I use those eraseable markers to erase permanent markers. You know the kind that are used to mark on those white "chalkboards" and are erased with a chalk style eraser. Just color over the permanent marker as if you're blacking it out then erase. Sometimes it MAY take a second or third time, depending on how long it's been there.

    Meths (methylated spirit) works for me every time (and petroleum lighter fuel for residues of sticky labels).

    There is a product called Grafitti Remover - works great - purchased at local hardware store. Works wonders on film holders

    Thank you very much for all the suggestions. I'll try using isopropyl alcohol first and progress to other methods suggested if that does not work.

    Oh, one more thing. How do I tell if the finish is shellac or lacquer? (That tells you how much I know about woodworking. )

    I received some defaced cescolite trays from an eBay auction today. This method worked WONDERFULLY.

    Something to consider that is virtually solvent free is the dry eraser (Mr. Clean brand, etc..) that is sold at WalMartor similar-- dampen it and scrub it off--As an example -I got my son a Video iPod for his birthday and his 2 yr old sister wasted no time in acquiring a Sharpie and did a number on it----That is a WHITE iPOD BTW--dry eraser took it all right off---a very impressive product ! That was the first time she acquired a Sharpie and what a perfect item to scribble up---it's clean as a pin now and the Sharpie's are out of reach !!!

    I always start with isopropyl alcohol then go on to ethanol and only after that try stronger stuff. If it is an ordinary "permanent marker"-pen the isopropanol should work.

    Never thought of that. I have a box full of the Mr. Clean dry eraser. Need to try it out. Thanks.
