Okay so before I go into telling you my two secret weapons I wanted to explain that this was totally my fault! I was filling out a Mother’s Day card to send to my mother in law and for some insane reason I wanted to have my 18 month old daughter help sign the card! In the midst of her scribbling over the card I walked away like a total dummy! I honestly don’t even remember what I walked away for! I think I left the sink running. Anyways….
And here is the amazing scribble art work we got before we moved onto the couch! Yes it literally happened it a matter of 60 seconds. So this is what I walked into when I remembered I left her with the marker like a total dummy!
Yeah that didn’t happen at all…
So after a day of staring at it wondering what the hell im going to do and people sending me tips and pointers of how to get it out, I started researching myself.
I tried lemon oil, milk, white vinegar and tooth paste (don’t ask) IT WAS ON THE LIST!
I remembered a while back when we moved into our house our printer got set on top of my lounge chair and I grabbed my secret weapon and went to town! Are you ready to find out what I used to get my couch to look like this now???
Yes I know…… Brilliant right??? Well, it was a totally better alternative than vinegar! That was just awful. It only took about 20 minutes of really really scrubbing it on the stain! I did let it sit on their for about 5 minutes before I worked the stain out. I used a hot wash cloth after to soak up some of the soap.
So you can still the marker stain a bit towards the bottom but it is still wet and I’m going to attack it again tomorrow! It’s totally better than I expected especially since this couch is almost white!
Well that’s all!!!! I hope this helps you if your furniture ever gets tagged up by your munchkins!!!
