Our project is about trying to dissolve or remove Sharpie stains from white, cotton shirts. We used 5 different ""dissolvents"" including: bleach, toothpaste, hairspray, lemon juice, and hand sanitizer. We chose this project because we thought it would be interesting to learn if Sharpie is actually permanent. The overall conclusion is that Sharpie is permanent but the stain can be reduced with certain dissolvents. It is important in learning how to remove stains.|Keywords: dissolvents, stains, Sharpie
