I'm not sure how it will work on your hardwood floor, but that magic eraser by the Bald Guy (PineSol Man) will take any stubborn mark off.

I couldn't believe how well it works. I am still in disbelief when i use it. :)

I used it to clean my white cabinets. What would have taken me hours of elbow grease , took me 30 mins of ease.

They sell it at *******, price is relatively cheap. If ya don't know what i'm talking about, it looks like a tan sponge, the box is blue, and it is approx. 4" by 2".

Good Luck

Let me know if it works. Bet ya it does.

The proper solvent to remove permanent marker is denatured alcohol.

Pine Sol, nor Goof-Of nor Lacquer Thinner will work.
