  • Hair spray or a magic eraser will work. You can also use murphys oil soap without the water mixture. Any type of leather cleaner or furniture cleaner.

  • Call Ace or some hardware store and ask them, or ask the furniture place where you bought the couch, even if it's years ago.

  • Leather is skin so try a bar soap that has a high moisture count like Dove or Olay.Scrub in a circular motion.Magic eraser is gonna strip the leather,so avoid using one!
