Hair spray often will remove ballpoint ink from fabric.

I have not tried it on a couch but on ink on my white uniforms hair spray works great. Just spray on and blot. The cheaper hair spray the better, old fashioned Aqua Net worked the best.

Make sure that you use aerosol hair spray. The pump sprays don't work as well.

Thanks, I was frantic because we had a visitor yesterday (2 yr old) and he scribbled on my boss' new couch. I think the hairspray thing is going to work. Thank you, thank u!

I tried aftershave and it did work but I rubbed hard in one spot and it took the color out so be careful and test an area first.

I just tried the hair spray suggestion and it worked like a charm. I hope when it dries, it does not leave a mark?

Pump hair spray does not work on real leather, it takes the color out!! don't do it!
