Any tips on getting permanent marker out of scrub pants? :( they are almost new and I hate to toss them... Also though about maybe dying them darker?

Rubbing alcohol if an alcohol based marker. Call your local craft store

Are sharpie permanent markers alcohol based? Lol

Buy a cool patch and sew it on over top? You aren't going to get sharpie out of anything.

Looks like you ran it through the wash...get a bottle of black Rit dye. Once through the wash and dryer you have no chance

It takes a while but holding a paper towel behind the stain while spraying hair spray on it will help get rid of it as well. Hope this helps! :)
