Removing Ink Stains from MDF Desk

I have a new built-in desk/shelving made from MDF polyurethane and my partner's ballpoint ink has now marked the desk top. Can anyone suggest how to best clean and remove the ink stains without scratching the surface?

Many thanks.

Try a Mr. Clean Magic eraser.

Diluted rubbing alcohol on a cotton ball, circular motions.

Please remember that your desk (made from MDF polyurethane) may not be waterproof - only water resistant - so use any liquid sparingly.

Here is a link that might help but be sure to try anything on an underside first - just to make sure it will not damage the top.

A Mr Clean magic eraser should do the trick. Just dampen it with a little water and rub off the ink. It should come off without scratching your surface.

Your next best option is rubbing alcohol. 70% or 90% would work the best for this. 30% would still work but takes a bit longer and a lot more rubbing.
