How can I get dry-erase (Expo) marker out of my white dress shirt? I threw rubbing alcohol, Shout, and a bleach pen at it. No visible difference from any of them immediately or after a wash, but it faded slightly in the dryer. I am tempted to do it all over again, but I'm worried about the impact those chemicals and washing over and over again is going to have on my new shirt!

It's strange that it faded only after I dried it. It's a new shirt, so I freaked a little and applied rubbing alcohol, Shout pen, and bleach pen all at the same time. None of them had ANY visible effect! Disappointed, I washed it twice and then stuck it in the dryer. Only after I dried it did it fade slightly.
I'm open to redoing this process till it goes away (provided it fades more) but this is a brand new white dress shirt and I'm afraid washing/drying it over and over again will shrink it or ruin it before it's time.
