what can i do! it now has purple writing all over it as i left a bag there for two days and must have been damp :*(

you will not get that off!
I did that about 2 years ago, and the mark is still there.

(sorry )

Have you tried cream cleaner? That seems to work when all else fails

WD40 will work. Just a tiny bit on a bit of rag. Good Luck.

Would brilllo padding it work - it might fade it smile

I will be watching this thread carefully! 2 days ago my DF noticed a red staining on my beech kitchen cabinet, its clearly off a plastic bag. I have no idea how it has stained it, it seems rather odd to me. Tried vinegar, and bicarb of soda, which didn't shift it. Might try hairspray, that got permanent marker off my walls and wardrobe when DS was little and made me a lovely drawing grin

I'd second hairspray!

I'd try Cif, that got felt tip pen off my wooden table after all else failed.

bleach? worked on my oilskin tablecloth took the stain out and not the colour of cloth.

Honestly try WD40...... (no one believes me..)

WD40 might work.

But also try one of those cleaning block things - magic eraser I think it's called? Mine is Doktor Power I got it in Asda

yy to the magic cleaning block things - mine were from Aldi. They removed the black scuff marks from my lino that had been there for years.

Never put soap or detergent on a magic eraser sort of thing - it will kill it in a very horrible way!

Fairy powerspray? Works on rust staines on my lino.

baby oil. or WD40. or hairspray.

Another recommendation for the magic blocks, they are fabuous for all sorts of things. (Especially good in the bathroom).
