      The magic marker was old and the floor is old it’s not coming up I may have to re-sand

  • Try a little tooth paste(not the gel) on a damp rag. Rub gently and then wipe with a clean damp rag.

    Try alcohol in an inconspicuous spot to see if it damages the finish. If it doesn't, try the alcohol. It works for permanent ink on plastic and glass.

    Hairspray removes permanent marker and ink, even on fabric after it has dried.

    Denatured alcohol , available at your hardware store. Denatured alcohol is safe to use cured finishes like polyurethane and oil-based varnish. You should always test it first on an inconspicuous area.
