Pen on Baby Annabel's face- HELP

(10 Posts)

dd1 got baby annabel for her 3rd birthday a few weeks ago. It's her favourite thing.

I discovered this morning that dd2 (15mo) has drawn all over her face with blue ball point pen. The doll is ruined and I am gutted.

Will anything get it off?

Oh no!
Baby wipes?

Nail varnish remover?
White spirit?

another vote for cif - seems to work wonders on most things!

If you've got any of that alcohol hand sanitizer gel, that's quite good for getting pen off things.

eHow has a method involving benzoyl peroxide acne ointment and a desk light and feedback here suggests it's worked for a number of people.

Or try spraying it with hairspray, and wiping immediately.

have tried baby wipes and nail polish remover but no luck.

I then tried milk cos heard that worked but nothing.

She now has clearasil all over her face but it doesn't seem to be working. Don't have a suitable lamp.

Apparantly peanut butter might work but I have none in at the moment.

any other suggestions?

It does sound as though you need the lamp with the Clearasil method, and to leave it under the lamp for several hours (preferably without setting fire to your house)
