  • I got magic marker off of wood with Krud Kutter. It's meant for latex paint in carpets, but it seems to work on a variety of things.

    Good luck!

  • Hairspray usually gets ink out, but check to make sure it won't harm the leather first...

  • Lighter fluid.....yeah I know sounds crazy..but does wonders around the house....
    it gets out the ink...and usually never ruins the finish. You should always check in an inconspicuous place first.
    Good Luck

  • rubbing alcohol... it gets ink and even permanent marker off.

    But you should check for color fastness, just to make sure it doesn't take the color off of your couch too.
