Help.."D"D has attacked the brand new fakey leather bar stools with a blue biro grr. How do i get it off? I have tried every cleaning spray known to man but its not shifting it.

Thanks in advance

Try spraying hair spray on the biro and then wipe off. I had this before with a brown leather settee and it worked. Just a suggestion.

Hairspray is the way to go - spray and wipe! Make sure you use a white cloth though

Hairspray didnt work! Arrggh. Any other ideas?

Nail varnish remover? The one with acetone in it.

Methalayted spirit (meths) certainly removes biro from clothes with no problems. I would try a drop in an inconspicuous place first, though.

Perfume- sounds silly but worked for me with biro on a white handbag!

Them magic eraser sponges can get biro off any surface. They cost £1 for a pack of two.

my little darling drew all over white pvc door in biro. nothing was bringing it off. I had to tip blewch directly on it so it drippeddown over it and then scrubbed like fuck with the green side of the washing up spinge. it brought it off. tipping bleach directly onto sponge and wiping did fuck all though.

Good old fairy liquid or cif, rub gently.

Nail varnish didnt work. I will pop out later and buy one of those magic eraser sponges. Then i will buy a pen pot and put all the pens out of reach. That will teach me. Apparently i wasnt quick enough in getting her paper was her response when asked why. She is now barred from sitting on the bar stools for a week - she loves having breakfast there.

Sunlight helped us when DD got creative on a similar surface! Took a while though you could use it for any last traces.

Salt water should do the trick. Gets biro off most things.

perfume will get it off

I heard hard boiled egg worked on biro (not kidding but have never tried it)

bread - the nasty white sliced type, rub it with it

Purfume, eau de toilette etc will do it, as if by magic.
