How do I get ink (black) out of my brand new microfiber sectional couch without harming it?
By cody from Salt Lake City, UT
My daughter colored on my micro fiber sofa with a black sharpie, I got it out (all of it)with a tooth brush and 409 and blotting with paper towels. it took a little effort but it came out. Love my micro fiber there has not been a stain I could not get out. Only wish my carpet was the same way. Good Luck
I want to thank everyone for their suggestions on how to get ink out of the microfiber couch. We just purchased a brand new set and while we're paranoid that the little ones will ruin it, I accidentally got ink on it. I knew my husband would flip (he wasn't home at the time) and I ran online and came across this website.
On our medium brown microfiber couch, my son saturated(!) black ballpoint pen in several spots - probably about 8 inches in diameter total. It came right out with aerosol hair spray rubbed in with a dry white cloth. Amazing!
I just made a 1/2 inch ink line on my micro suede (microsuede) couch. This page came up first on google. After reading the advice, I ripped a small square off the cleansing wipe I have in the bathroom and dabbed the ink line. It came out almost instantly with no effort. Looks like nothing ever happened.
thank you so much!!! i used the baby wipe
and it worked like a charm!
