Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

A few months ago our daughter used a black marker on a white vinyl fence. I heard hairspray removes ink so I tried it. It faded it a little bit but did not remove the stain.

Recently our youngest son was coloring with permanent markers on the computer desk and made a mess. I tried using Lemon oil but unfortunately it didn't help at all. Then the thought came to me that I should try Clove oil.

After using one drop directly on the desk surface, I started to swirl it around with my finger. The marker stains began breaking down immediately. One area was a little more stubborn, so I just left the oil remain on the desk so it would continue eating the chemicals.

I came back a few hours later and swirled the remaining stains with my finger and the stain vanished. How amazing these essential oils are. It's great that God has given us these plant extracts to help us with day to day problems.

No other product in the world could I use to remove a marker stain and then also apply to my neck to serve as a nice smelling cologne!

As an update to this testimonial, I have also discovered that Pine oil is just as effective, if not more so than Clove.
