Have you considered asking the thrift store people what THEY recommend to take the markings off? Maybe they have a particular suggestion..

That being said, I can take regular sharpie permanent marker off of smooth plastic cups using just a dab of acetone fingernail polish on a paper towel..it should work exactly the same on smooth ceramic. The fingernail polish can be the cheapie kind.

We used a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser on our window yesterday, and it worked. We have had permanent marker on it since we moved in 2 years ago. We were cleaning the crayons off the wall, and thought why not. So it would probably work for the cups.

Hairspray works great for getting permanent marker off all kinds of stuff! I imagine it would work on a mug since it will even work on fabric.

Being a chemist, I'd suggest using acetone or rubbing alcohol.  It should removed most of the ink, depending on how porous the material is.  You might also want to try ethyl acetate i.e. nail polish thinner if you can find it.

Another vote for the Magic Eraser.  That thing is magic.  Seriously.

Rubbing alcohol should do it. It works on glass petrie dishes and disneyland character costumes.

I know it sounds wierd, but I have used toothpaste (not the gel kind) to get permanent marker off.  I think it was a wood surface.  But you could try it if nothing else is working.

Wow, thanks for all the wonderful suggestions!

I purchased straight acetone from Home Depot yesterday and I am happy to report that it removed the permanent marker instantly! Now I cant wait to start my office gifts!

Thanks again!  Wink
