My sister is frantic. Someone has accidentally drawn (more then one mark too) blue biro on her white leather sofa! She is beside herself. Anyone got any ideas if it is possible and if so how to get the mark off without ruining the sofa. Thanks very much. Fairy

Try the JML Magic Sponge thing.

Tipex

Spray It With Hairspray And Watch

Put blue biro all over the sofa to make it a blue sofa, that's a sofa king good idea.

get advice from a car valeter? they have all the gear for getting stuff off fabric and leather?

milton baby sterilisation liquid on a cotton bud will take it out Used to use it for car valeting on leather car seats comes in a little bottle from most supermarkets... or you can use nail polish remover... but only apply on the affected area! then wipe with a damp cloth and apply some leather conditioner as it will dry the area out a little, and would crack if left

Alcohol either Gin or Vodka dabbed on a piece of kitchen roll

Milton contains a bleach like ingredient so be careful with that too!

use a white biro over the top??? or flog it as a design feature!

e.g ltd edition ;-)

Same happened with me, hairspray did the job !

lynx body spray will do the job do a test first tho, imagine wot it does to your armpits :thinking:

Worryingly Lynx seems to shift nearly anything.

Saved me a few times.

perfume!!! daughter drew all over our cream leather couch and we sprayed perfume all over the marks and it took it all out! and then recently daughter and son drew all over our wardrobes with permanent marker and perfume took it all out again!

alcohol removes alot of things, so try alcohol wipes or a bit on cotton wool

cut it out:thumbsup:

Hi, I'm Barry Scott .....

thanks guys - she will kill me if it makes it worse so if you never hear from me again....................!

Try It works! cleaning blocks, there the best thing I've found - they have them on QVC - good luck!

Id definately go with the hairspray. My husband thought I was mad but had to eat his words it just wipes off and no mark on my white leather!

Use the hairspray - it works brilliantly :thumbsup:
We've had to use it a few times i think you should use it sparingly as it might remove the protective coating if left on for too long.

Tipp-ex.

I've used a kitchen cream cleanser and it got biro off in the past.

Beetroot works for me and you can eat it afterwards!

Q: Can you get blue biro off a white leather sofa?

A: Yes, using the following procedure: Using a hand or other lifting device, pick up the blue biro and place it somewhere else. (Note: do not place the blue biro back on the sofa as this will result in the problem being recreated).

EDIT: Not making fun of your situation OP. Only adding my silly comment because the thread is old. Hope you've got the stain removed :thumbsup:
