1. Take a shower. The most common place to find a highlighter stain is on your body. Whether you woke up to find neon yellow all over your face or were working so diligently you didn't notice the hot pink all over your hands, standing in the shower for ten minutes is the best stain removal system.
2. Give clothing, walls and carpets a good rub with plain old soap and water. Most highlighters are water-based inks, which makes soap and water a great stain remover. You may have to repeat the process several times to completely remove the ink.
3. Apply rubbing alcohol to the affected area. However, alcohol will remove latex paint and ruin certain fabrics. Test a small area and be cautious when using this strong liquid.
4. Use salt water for clothing stains. In addition to using soap and rubbing alcohol, some people soak their stained apparel in salt water and then freeze it overnight. Thaw your clothing the next morning and run it through the washing machine for good-as-new status.
5. Pour a laundry pre-treatment liquid over the stain and wait 10 to 20 minutes. When the time is up, place pressure on the stain by rubbing your thumbs over the affected area. (Place a paper towel or cloth in between--don't put your hands directly on the pre-treater.) Let the stain soak for another 10 minutes, then repeat as necessary
