Removing Permanent Marker from Furniture

My 4yr old has drawn all over our off white linen couch Trying to find a natural way to get rid of it.

TIA!

Not sure if it will work with marker but I got ink pen out with 2 parts peroxide and 1 part dawn.

Depending on the ink, rubbing alcohol should work. I use it straight on ink stains and just keep rubbing and adding more then rinse when done. I also had a friend use hand sanitizer on Sharpie on a microfiber couch successfully. Once she was done you could barely see it.

not sure if you would want to attempt this on your linen BUT WD40 is wonderful at removing permanent marker (baby oil works too but not as well). Then to remove the oil scrub dawn original into it. Ive cleaned up so many stains with this trick!

Yep, I've always heard rubbing alcohol and blotting. Good luck!

Do you think WD40 would work on clothes, too? Of course i would then wash it about 10 times!!
