Yep. The title says it all. DH was "watching" DD while I took ODD to the doc. Click <a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v510/jstevenson0617/April2007121.jpg" target="_blank">here</a> and <a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v510/jstevenson0617/April2007122.jpg" target="_blank">here</a> to see the damage.<br><br>
Anyway, any safe tips for removing it?<br><br>
Thanks!

If you have it try some alcohol-based facial toner. (like sea breeze) That's what I used to always use to get bar stamps off. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: Straight rubbing alcohol might work too. Just put some on a cotton ball and rub.

Sorry, I don't mean to lol! That happened to us and we had to let it wear off on it's own. DS' skin is sensitive and too much rubbing really irritated his skin.

<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/yeahthat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="yeah that">: I've used rubbing alcohol on myself to get off permanent marker, but definitely wouldn't use it on a child because it is so drying.

Oh she is <i>cute.</i> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> You might try a baby wipe, if you use them, and then just time. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Thanks all! I used one of my Ponds Daily Cleansing Cloths and it came right off. Phew! I thought she'd have to go to a birthday party tomorrow looking like...welll, looking like she drew all over her face with a sharpie marker. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Hmmm...any tips for her shirt, since she used that as a coloring book as well?

My 2 year old did the same thing last week! DH managed to get most of it off with some rubbing alcohol, but she still has traces of it on top of her head and on her neck. Did yours use a Sharpie, too?

glad you got it off her face. as for clothes, i dont know. but i will say the ecover stain stick, bac-out or bronners are my best friends for getting the impossible out of something.
