I recently bought a new livingroom suite, my 4 year old has written on one of the chairs with a marker what do I do? And is there anything I can do to protect my livingroom suite?

  • As long as it wasn;t a permanent sharpie marker, the markings SHOULD come off with dish soap and water. Use a clean face cloth soaked in hot water, and rub the surfaces gently. I have microfiber furniture in my family room...and they have held up to some SERIOUS spills and stains, and always come out clean with a little soap and hot water! :o)

  • Sorry to hear. :( What is your couch made of? What type of marker did your son use? That might help for a solution.
