  • Try hairspray. Spray a small amount on there (the size of the stain), let it sit for about 5 mins. & wash off with cold water. Or you can call the manufacturer & see what they suggest.

  • i promise this works, try it. someone gave me this tip and it removed blue ink from my creme microfiber glider. use a cotton ball and rubbing alcohol. dab the stain and the ink will literally come off on the cotton ball. i would test the underneath fabric first to make sure ANY of these suggestions wont further stain your couch.

  • vinegar and water, the only problem is after you get it out you have to wash it with something else to get the vinegar smell out but it works every time
