HOW DO YOU REMOVE PERMANENT MARKER???

Hello all,
I know we've had this thread before, but how do I remove permanent marker from laminated posters??? We used permanent markers on a couple posters but only because I thought I could clean it with something and reuse it for this year.
Can anyone help me with this???

You can also take a dry erase marker and write over it and erase immediately! It works great! I did it to my locker tags that had been up all year and it worked great. For best results, use a new dry erase marker and erase right away. I did little chunks at a time!
Good Luck!

Have you tried writing over it with a dry erase marker? I know that works on the white board.

Aerosol hair spray or nail polish remover will usually work too.

I agree with those who say get a very inky dry erase marker and go over it. Then immediately erase it. Do it a few times. I get sharpie marker off all the time doing this.

I do this also. Makes me wonder about the toxicity of those markers at times.
