I have a red marker stain on a loveseat. What should I use to remove it?
By Scott from Vancouver
Ink including permanent marker comes off solid surfaces including plastic, glass, metal and vinyl, and some fabrics with plain old alcohol (just as long as you get to it fast). I've even gotten it off walls years later. The walls were painted with semi gloss, but it worked.

I had a party and one of my friends was tattooing us with Stanford Sharpie permanent markers. Then we sat on the couch. The marker rubbed off on the couch and now my dad is mad. I need some ideas on how to get it out. Help me.
My daughter used my couch as an art pad with Sharpies and the only thing I found was this stuff at Walmart in the paint aisle called Oops. It does not discolor fabrics.
Try using hair spray. (06/04/2005)
Believe me "nothing" removes permanent marker off a leather couch except "Ajax". I know it sounds harsh, but it's the only thing that remove 85-90% of the stain. (07/12/2005)
Well thank you for all the info. We have a micro fiber couch and we did this method, which really helped: hairspray, then Noxzema acne medicated wipes, and then baby wipes. Works wonders, but do it in this order and it will help. I tried the other way and it just took longer to get it off. Thank you for all of you guys' help. (08/03/2008)
