Today I had my first experience with toddlers and Sharpie Markers. Oh boy. Watch this video tutorial that I created to show you how to get permanent marker marks off of leather surfaces in case you ever find yourself in the same boat.
I tried several things, but what worked was products with denatured alcohol as the first ingredient. Examples include:
- Aerosol Hairspray
- Victorias Secret Body Spray or
- Isopropyl Alcohol
With a saturated cotton ball, rub on some test patches in a discrete area to test how it reacts with your leather finish. The above three had no affects on my leather. Then with the same cotton ball, rub the marks in circular motion until removed. It was so quick and easy and I am so glad my chair is saved!
Have you ever had to do this? Have you had any funny marker experiences with toddlers?
