The Pen +The Dryer = Trouble

Today Princess decided that we needed to decorate the bathroom…..As you can tell by this post title, it was not a mommy approved activity! She used a pen. ALL OVER THE DRYER! (As you can tell, I was just a little upset)!

She didn’t just color the dryer, she scribbled on the washer and Tater’s bathtub. (Amid the scribble, I am just a tiny bit proud to say, she wrote her name. I just wish it wasn’t on any appliances).
First, as a lesson, she had to attempt to scrub off her handiwork. I let her try our “Mr. Clean Magic Eraser (not so magical). Then, as it DID NOT budge, I tried. I tried numerous things to take it off!  The Magic Eraser? Nothing. Bleach? Nothing. Arm & Hammer Baking powder and water? Nothing.

Finally, in an act of desperation, I tried Resolve with Spray ‘n’ Wash (for clothes) plus Clorox Bleach and a toothbrush…..It worked! The washer, dryer and baby bathtub are now free of blue ink!!! Thank Goodness!
