How do I get a permanent marker stain out of my husband's leather chair?

My niece, who is 7 and should know better, decided that it would be great to teach my 2 year old how to draw on the furniture. So they both drew on my husband's leather chair. How do i get it out? I read somewhere that WD-40 would do it, but I don't have any on hand. Does anyone have another idea? Thanks! AND Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

  • WD-40 IS THE ONLY ONE I KNOW OF, AND IT IS SUPPOSED TO WORK WELL.

  • i don't know if this would work but it's worth a shot, finger nail polish remover or windex. It might not be good for the leather though

  • Hair spray - I saw it on that show where the two British women clean up gross houses.

  • Fingernail polish works wonders on permanent marker, and its alright to use on leather. Just have a damp washcloth in your other hand bc the ink will start to run.

  • I am going to try that stuff...The WD-40 didn't work and it did on my leather jacket when it got pitch, so now will try the polish remover and hairspray. Thanks ladies!!
