Did you know...

...that regular old rubbing alcohol gets indelible ink out of fabric?

My son wrote on our microfiber couch with a permanent pen. I used a little rubbing alcohol on a q-tip and gently rubbed the pen marks and they came right out! With no damage to the couch itself!

Just thought those of you with "artistic" toddlers like mine might want to know! :)

  • I wish the Magic erasers were more durable- I hate when they start to shred/crumble- what a mess.

  • Yep, but that's also part of why i got chocolate brown furniture now so I dno't have to deal with cleaning - though they've been good and havent' written on the new furniture and we've had it 6 months!
