Thank you everyone, I tried some but I guess it was to late. I got most out but not all.

Whenever you have a stain like that you should go to the manufacturers website they often have solutions to getting products out of or off of a particular surface. Shout will unfortunately often set stains like that so I would go to the website and see what you can do to try and save the shirt. Never get a stain wet before checking the possible solutions water will often negate cleaning certain stains. The Queen of Clean has solutions for almost any household stains in her books too. I've found them very helpful.

I'll be trying both of these methods of dry erase stain removal as my daughter can't seem to keep it off of her clothes. I have taken them away from her for now as I can't have her ruining any more clothes. this is a seemingly impossible stain to get out.

I've used a mixture of 1 to 1 white vinegar and warm water. Spray it on and let it sit for a while then wash. It works with regular marker and copy machine toner (the toner was me not my son, haha) so I would think it works dry erase markers.

try the oxyclean spray or a paste made of the powdered oxyclean. I use Dawn dishwashing liquid directly on grease stains on clothes, it might work for dry erase. But the oxyclean spray has been known to work for my stains when shout doesn't. good luck.
