I accidently dropped white board marker on my textbook and unfortunately it landed on its tip. so now there is a big stain on the page. any ideas that how can i remove it. i tried eraser. actually textbook is pretty important.

  • Try a solvent, such as acetone or ethyl-methyl ketone (nail-polish remover), with a pad of paper towel underneath to absorb the ink. It might work, make the stain a bit lighter, or do nothing. Caution! Flammable. Dec 4, 2023 at 0:43

If it is your own textbook, and you are in a study class where others have the same book:

  • photocopy the stained page front and back from a borrowed copy
  • if you can, copy to both sides of a single sheet of paper
  • cut off the damaged page leaving enough to tape to
  • use clear tape to overlay the stained page
  • cut off excess paper to be smaller than other pages, so it doesn't protrude
  • Ohh so no way to remove the stain? lol thanks btw Nov 16, 2023 at 6:56
