As the title says!
I have a very creative 3 year old for whom any surface could end up a work of art! I also have a 6 year old who always leaves her pens around where the 3 yo can find them!
My current project is biro on her bed sheet.
Please help!

Similar problem here - DS managed to get a biro in the tumble drier with the towels.

He is 17 <cries a bit>

Stain Devils do one for biro/ink.
I find them really good, you can buy them in the supermarket!

Hairspray (lots) on the biro marks, then wipe. Worked on a sofa I had.

Thank you. I've seen stain devil stuff in my local supermarket.

Momi does any hairspray work, ie the cheap stuff?

Biro is oil based. A good oil stain remover will lift it. I recommend Swarfega.

I know that, fot Indian ink, hand-sanitiser gels do the trick. Might be worth a try on biro ink.

Cheapo hair spray worked on the many biro marks I used to get on my lab coat. Was a student so economy brands all the way.
Spray like hell, try not to inhale and rub. Repeat until it's gone.

Another vote for hairspray

Cheaply hairspray works best.

Wow, thanks for all the ideas! I've got some cheap hairspray so will give that a try tomorrow if it's not raining. There's so much to remove I might gas myself in an enclosed space grin
