I used the rubbing alcohol with a white dish rag, and white hand towel. Worked great! The key is to use it generously, don't think you have to be careful and only use a little bit at a time. Saturate an area of your rag and scrub. We have a tan colored microfiber ottoman that our 3-year old granddaughter used as paper. I thought I was going to be sick.
Thanks Google Friends! That was a great ~ easy ~ tip!
WOW is all I kept on saying... My 2 yr old son drew on my sisters mocha colored microfiber couch and I came to this site and heard to try hairspray.... It was amazing how fast it came out
Hair spray worked great on my red microfiber couch after my son wrote on it with the ball point pen. It was fast and easy and didn't stain or bleach out the fabric. Just spray it on and blot it off with a wash rag.
My 2 yr old drew all over our brown micro-fiber couch with blue pen. I got onto this site and read all of the above and used hand sanitiser and a soft scourer and the pen came right out(yes, there was some scrubbing to do but so worth it). Thank you sooo much, you saved my beloved lounge!!!!
Hairspray did the job my two yr old wrote all over my couch with a blue pen came right up.
I definitely didnt think the hairspray idea was going to work, but it worked like a charm and dried fast as well-- I sprayed it on a papertowel rather than directly on the stain!
My 2 y/o daughter got ahold of a blue pen and marked ALL over our brown couch. I mean, almost every last cushion. I hopped on here and searched for a way to get it out. I used the rubbing alcohol...45 minutes and a very sore wrist later, the stains are out. Thank you guys so much!!!
I used hairspray worked awesome!
Hairspray works amazingly!
I heard that rubbing alcohol got pen out of microfiber....and my couch is white.....I blotted the pen stain with alcohol on a clean white cotton cloth , it took a little elbow grease but the stain came right out.
Mine just did that to my couch as well, she is also 2, how does it come out??
You definitely came to the right place!!! My couches are of the same material I have a little one who loves pens too...and markers, candy, chef boyardee, and anything else that stains!!! I have 2 words that I live by when it comes to keeping my couches/chairs looking new...SHOUT WIPES!!! You can locate them by the laundry stain removers. They come in a small box and contain individually packaged "to go" wipes. They are a life saver. I keep them in my purse for sudden spills or splats on clothing, cloth shoes, and even vehicle seats & carpet. They can be used on everything!!! I hope this works for you. You may have to use a couple wipes for stubborn stains, but they leave no after marks. Try them, I think you will like them.
Hairspray did the charm...glad I found this thread
Hand sanitizer idea is amazing..it worked!!
Hand sanitizer!!! Works like a charm.
My son got black ink on my Mocha Brown microfiber couch. Bleach and alcohol are out of the question. It is going to cost me over $100.00 to get it done professionally. Help!!
Hand sanitizer gets ink out of microfiber!! A little elbow grease but it works wonders
Thanks Guys for the tip. I was out of rubbing alcohol so I used hand sanitizer as someone suggested and it worked wonders. I have very light beige micro fiber couch and the hand sanitizer immediately removed the ink stains.
Hairspray usually always works to get stains out of ink... It can be used on fabric, clothes and just about anything!
The rubbing alcohol worked great with a white cloth......a lot of scrubbing tho....but the blue pen came right out of my beige micro fiber couch. Thanks guys
Rubbing alcohol was like magic! It erased the stain, and dried quickly. Glad I found this post! I hope no one listened to the one who said to use BLEACH! That sounds like a big mess!
MY 2 year old did the same thing and after trying All and a carpet cleaner with no luck. I tried the Alcohol and it worked perfectly.
Alcohol did the trick to get the pen out. Man was I pissed, but your posts helped me! Thanks everyone. :O) RG
