My kids had Sharpie marked a friend on a sleep over and it had gone onto my 15 month old ivory leather settee. I looked through this website and spray sunsceen seemed most popular to remove the stain. I tried Banana Boat spray factor 50 and it came off straight away. It really works. What a relief:) You have to use a spray (I tried a cream first and it didn't do much).

This (sunscreen) took the finish off my leather sofa- dark brown, so did magic eraser and rubbing alcohol

Just a tip I wouldn't recommend using rubbing alcohol it makes it worse(I know from experience)

I used a sunscreen followed by a pocketBac it worked really well(with the pocketBac rub it in first then put a layer on to soak). I suppose any rubbing alcohol would work as long as that is the active ingredient. Hope this helpsXx
