Removing Dry Erase Marker from Back of Couch

My friend has a daughter who was spending the night and she got into the dry erase makers I left out. She marked on the back of my brand new couch. Does any one know how to remove this? - dipnz

To get the marker marks off of the couch use a Magic Eraser by Mr. Clean. (usually found at Wal- Mart)

I just got a new micro-fiber couch and everything is supposed to come off with soap and water. Is the Magic Eraser okay to use on microfiber?

how do I get dry erase marker off of a couch cushion?

Answer: Try a magic eraser. Because you don't say what kind of material the couch is, that's the best advice I can give. Also I've heard that if you go over the marks with the same marker you may be able to wipe it off but if it is an upholstered (cloth) couch, I wouldn't recommend that.

Magic Eraser did not work on removing dry erase marker from my cotton pants. I was looking for something to work at removing it as well. I know hairspray doesn't work either. Perhaps alcohol will!

Thank you so much for the magic eraser idea it saved my brand new yellow couch from a blue dry erase marker. Rub it with the dry sponge and it comes out.

Nail polish remover or hairspray. Good luck.

Are you suppose to wet the Magic Eraser like the instructions say? Last time one of my kids got dry erase marker on clothing I think I read that water was not good for it. Please help :)

I'll cut to the chase: Spray bottle with regular water. Spray area and rub with microfiber cloth. This just happened to me and it is gone!

I was working on my screen with a whiteboard marker (the green expo dry erase). I went to get a tissue to clean the screen (yes, you can do that it won't "hurt" your screen) when the marker hit my purple couch. I don't know what it is made of, maybe poly or microfiber, but this method will work.

Hope I could help! The image is the spot after I cleaned it with my spray bottle and microfiber cloth.

Use a dry, Mr Clean eraser. Or if like me the Dollar store brands. Takes a little rubbing but it does work. Just did it yesterday, first time.
