Ideas to get biro off a leather couch

Apart from not letting them have biro's to start with :doh: :doh: :doh:

I did try an alcohol wipe but that managed to discolour the leather.

I used neat washing up liquid to get it off mine, all came off! It didn't dicolour the leather but it is cream so not easy to notice, maybe try it in a none noticable place 1st!

Hope it works :hug:

Depends on the leather if it is split leather that will strip the colour treated layer off.
Car leather cleaner is great it may take a few cleans though an you may not get it all off sorry.
We had this on out last one FIL has his own upholstry company and he could clean our off our cream suit in the end he made us new cushions but of course they didn't match.
