As a busy parent juggling work and family life, it’s common to find pen marks on your white office furniture. But fret not! With a few simple household items and a little patience, you can easily restore your furniture to its spotless condition. Let’s dive into these easy methods!

Supplies You’ll Need

Before we get started, gather these supplies:

  • Rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer
  • Cotton balls or a soft cloth
  • Baking soda
  • Water
  • Magic eraser
  • Mild dish soap
  • A bowl
  • A sponge
  • Towels or paper towels

Test First

Before you begin the cleaning process, it’s crucial to test your chosen method on a small, hidden section of the furniture. This helps avoid any potential damage to the surface.

Method 1: Rubbing Alcohol or Hand Sanitizer

Rubbing alcohol or hand sanitizer is highly effective for most pen marks. Dampen a cotton ball or cloth with the alcohol or sanitizer, and gently rub the stain. The ink should dissolve, making it easier to remove.

Method 2: Baking Soda Paste

Tougher stains require a paste made from baking soda and water. Create a paste by mixing baking soda and water in a bowl. Apply the paste to the stain and gently rub it with a cloth. The mild abrasiveness of baking soda will help lift the ink.
