How do you get pen off Barbie's face?

I tried rubbing alcohol and the magic eraser. Any other ideas?

  • here's a link I found on the subject-

    here's some of what they mentioned-
    "The following have ALL been used by various restorationists to remove ink and magic marker stains from vinyl dolls: Goo Gone, Removzit, photo emulsion cleaner (Tech 12, from archival houses), My favorite is Removezit from Twin Pines. I DO I DO use the popular Twin Pines products formulated by Nick Hill for restoration of my basket-case Barbies, and I have had good success with them. "

    hope that helps- I keep a bottle of goo gone around since it's one of those things that seem trivial, but when you need it you need it!
