well you could try this, but it depends on how soft the leather is ... so try it on the back/or an area out of sight for a reaction first. Spray hairspray on a cloth and rub gently. HTH

hairspray definitely works on my leather sofa. I just spray the stuff on and rub it. but lmb is right, err on the side of caution.

This is a link off Ask Jeeves - it says hairspray too!

ds drew on our cream leather sofa with biro, and I rang DFS (furniture shop) who said they couldn't recommend anything to remove it, but it usually rubs off by itself. And they were right - it just gradually disappeared. It seems that a lot of rubbing with cleaner in one go doesn't work, but gradual contact with dh eventually wears it away.
