How do you get magic marker out of marble tile?

Monday’s Answer:

With some luck and the following. No sure bet here.

Try blotting with microfiber cloth lightly moistened with a spot (size of a quarter) of denatured alcohol or acetone. Be careful to not spread the marker and no smoking.

If that doesn't work try a poultice available from a stone contracting supplier.
