Do Fabric Markers Wash Off ?
The simple explanation is that permanent fabric markers cannot be washed out due to the ink’s non-water soluble nature. Unlike washable markers, the ink in permanent markers consists of a resin, colorant, and solvent. The colourant is finely ground pigment that gives the ink its vibrant hue, while the solvent acts as a carrier for the pigment, often being some form of alcohol. The resin, a polymer, binds the colour pigment to the material when writing or drawing.
The key distinction between washable and non-washable markers lies in the type of resin used in the ink. Permanent markers contain a resin that is resistant to water, making it difficult for the ink to dissolve.
However, there is a secret ingredient for cleaning off permanent ink – rubbing alcohol. Should you ever need to remove permanent ink from yourself, your artwork, or your child, rubbing alcohol can dissolve the ink effectively.
