Removing Sharpie Marker from car leather seats!!!???

Posted by piper101 (My Page) on

Hi, Hope someone can help. I just found that my son marked black permament marker (sharpie I think) on my dove gray leather car seats!!! He fessed up that he did it today so it's been on the leather for we'll say 3 hours ( just happened to decide to vacuum the car out and found it). It's the thin tip and a smiley face but still.... Any words of wisdom or tips on how it might be removed? I tried the leather cleaner I have from the dealer (Honda) but nothing.

Thanks, Nicole

Try cheap hair spray. It works on leather. I had a purse that rubbed against pens in my desk. It was all marked up and hairspray saved it.

Jannie, Oh thank goodness, I'll run right now and try it. I'll let you know.

Problem Solved!!!

Thanks Jannie, It worked!!! I think I rubbed a little too hard (should have looked at cotton ball and realized that gray on the c.ball means stop) but it's gone and I can deal with just a little rub through of the grain I guess.

Thanks for being my guardian angel today!!! Put a big check mark (no pun intended) in the WIN column.
