How do I get rid of Sharpie magic marker stain on cotton or cotton blend clothing fabric?

Heloise recommends rubbing alcohol for ball point pens. (She says hair spray used to be recommended, but no longer since the formula for ink has changed.)

I've tried rubbing alcohol with minimal success. I'd be grateful for your suggestions.

It's permanent marker so it might never come out.

Most sharpies are permenant markers. If you have already tried washing and then dried the item in the dryer you may have set the stain. Hairspray let sit, then soak in warm water with some bleach (color safe if need be) You can also try the Tide pens they work pretty good on most stains.
