Would rubbing it with milk work? This is meant to work for biro on clothes, so maybe?

Or you might have to try Stain Devils if you can get it where you are.

Having started the other biro thread of the day, I am concluding that the answer is: you can't At least ours was only a doll.

have you tried a wet wipe? They seem to cope with most things.

oh my word, that's a lot of answers and a lot of things to try.

Sorry to hear you have had biro devastation purpleturtle (do you live in Mornington Crescent btw?). I'll try the milk and the hairspray and the milk, wet wipes and nailpolish ain't shifting it.

WD40 gets crayon off paint (use sparingly) , it may be worth a go if you cant shift it any other way.

This is my only household tip..

You can get special vinyl cleaner - just can't remember the name of it at moment. Will ask dh, they use it at work.

Try toothpaste! I used it to get biro off a doll and it worked

DH is going to try to find out name of product - the stuff he has has been decanted into a plain container!

He did say though to go to any motorist supply shop - so many cars have vinyl upholstery/roofs that they sell specialist products.

tried eucalyptus oil as the Aussies recommend in for absolutely bloody everything as a matter of national pride but no luck

Do all these substances also work for leather?
