How do I get pen off of a leather couch?

I have a dark blue leather couch. My daughter decided it would be funny to draw on it. It's in multiple places and I need to get it out. How do I get it out without ruining the couch?

  • Call the manufactuerer if there's a no.#. Otherwise I'm thinking alcohol? Try it in an inconspicious area first to see if it does anything. Good Luck! But I'm not sure! Hope you find what works best for you!

  • Salt will draw ink out of most fabric and carpet. Is this a suede couch or polished leather? Sprinkle regular table salt over it and that will soak up most of it. I've used salt to pull ink out of the carpet recently when a pen burst. Then I'd try a leather cleaner for the rest.
