    My dd did a gorgeous big biro square about 10cm x10cm.... totally coloured in. It came off with metho and a cotton cloth. Do a test patch somewhere first though!!!!

    Glad you managed to get it out. I think I would have flipped. Will give the metho a try first as I think I already have some of that in the house

    Try milk. Always comes right off with milk. Just soak into cloth and spot rub. : )

    I use hairspray too - usually works

    Metho might be a bit harsh on leather?
    I hope you remove it I remember getting a frantic call from DH once - DD had drawn big pink hearts on our white leather sofa
