Ink on my sofa

I got pen on my sofa. Me, not my kid (I can't blame it on her). How do I get it out? I tried the spray upholstery cleaner and it didn't work. The sofa is dark brown ultrasuede.

ETA: It would be better if it's something readily available in a decently stocked house and I don't have to buy somethign new. Not necessary, though.

  • well you can also try a bit of your liquid laundry detergent, let it sit on it for 3 or 4 minutes then blot away

  • You can try a product sold in Home Depot and online called FOLEX. www.folex.org, we sometimes use it in our carpet cleaning business. Just rub with a soft bristle brush so you don't damage the fibers.

  • I'll try that if I can't find anything I already have.

  • I don't use liquid, but I might have a sample pack sitting around somewhere.

  • Worked! At least it looks like it. I'll see for sure once it's dry.
