How do you remove ink from a toilet lid?

My son decided to color the toilet lid with a black ink pen, and I can not get it off. Any ideas/suggestions?

  • Tried it, didn't work. I think it's because of the finish on the lid. Any other suggestions?

  • Fingernail polish remover might work also. If all else fails, a new one is only about $5 at Wal-Mart
