First, grab your WD-40, then grab some toothpaste. Yup, toothpaste.

Toothpaste and WD-40 may seem like an unlikely pairing, but believe it or not, they actually work together. If you combine the two, it forms a cleaning solution that removes permanent marker!

That’s right, by simply mixing toothpaste and WD-40, you’ve got a cleaning solution you can use to clean up those messes that only curious kids leave behind– or bad artists. Either works.

No more will you have to deal with kids drawing all over things with permanent marker and not being able to remove it. Even old, dried marker is no match for this hack!
