Spray Hairspray on a cloth and rub carefully. You may be best trying it on an old leather garment first just to check but I am sure it was Hairspray I used once on mine.

After reading the above we tried Pantene Pro-V hairspray to remove blue biro pen that was a day or two old from a (recently brand new) cream leather sofa and it worked a treat. It took about a dozen sprays to fully remove and we found that leaving each spray for a short while worked much more effectively than spraying and wiping off straight away.

Prior to reading this thread we also tried the cleaner supplied with the sofa, domestos and nail varish remover. All did not work.

So thanks for the help, my daughter's no longer grounded for life!! icon_biggrin.gif
