Capital Punishment

Ok, so I explained Belly's sudden desire to draw on furniture. Well, Saturday morning I woke up to a raging sore throat and snow coming down. But I dragged my arse out of bed because I'd promised to take the kids to Breakfast with the Easter Bunny and the book fair.
On the way out, we pass the refrigerator. My lovely stainless steel, side by side, first new appliance I ever purchased refrigerator.
And there is a now familiar jelly bean person scene on it.
I flipped. I told Isaiah he is on punishment, and that he's going to clean that off. Then he informs me that it's done in Sharpie. WTF. My reply? "Then you're going to FIND a way to clean it off."
He cried.
I fumed.
Hubs cleaned it off.

How in the world did he get that off? SO glad that he did! But do tell, I have a table with pink high lighter that's not coming off....

A rubber eraser will remove Sharpie marks from virtually any hard surface, even wood furniture. Rubbing alcohol is my other trick (even on a flat panel TV). I feel your pain.

Dish soap is all he used! About the table, I just keep rubbing at it, eventually I'll rub the finish off... along with the jell bean people.
