hairspray gets rid of it


(well, depending on what manner of writing implement was used. Hairspray will get rid of biro. Baby wipes should get rid of felt tip)

I had some hairspray in my cleaning box just for such an occasion.

Till dd1 found it and styled her already styled-to-within-an-inch-of-its-life hair with it hmm

good luck

Our ds's have biro'd all over our leather couch. DP has been surfing t'internet for cleaning products but none suggested hair spray.
So, will a pump action bottle of Charles Worthington 'big hair' do it, or does it have to be aerosol Ellnet type stuff?

kerrymum, she is already rehomed wink, sent off with a stick and a spotted hankechief grin
flibberty anyold hairspray will do, really is magical the way it removes it, but dont scrub the leather, spray the hairspray on an old cloth then rub biro marks lightly with cloth smile
