This post is a little off theme but I'm so impressed I had to share.
While sitting on the couch I accidentally wrote on the seat with red pen. I thought for sure I ruined it since I wrote on the matching chair with a black pen about 6 months ago and couldn't get that ink stain out. I did a quick Internet search and since I don't own hairspray I tried rubbing alcohol on an q-tip. Much to my surprise the ink just lifted off like magic. It worked so well I tried it on the old stain and if greatly reduced the appearance of the black ink too!!
I think the moral of the story is I shouldn't be allowed to use pens while seated on the furniture but its nice to know how to fix it if I do! I'm a disaster.
