We splurged and got a brand new microfiber couch and love seat a few months ago. Imagine our horror to find that our 4 year old son had scribbled on 2 cushions with a permanent marker. Eeek! Then the next day, we found that he scribbled on another cushion with an ink pen.

Luckily, it looks like I found a miracle solution to get the couch to look as good as new (which is good, since it IS new). Here it is:

It is one part of Neutrogena facial cleanser (this doesn't leave a soapy residue) to 3 parts of DISTILLED water. It has to be distilled so there are no minerals in it. Squirt it on the stain, let it sit for a few minutes, then brush the stain with a toothbrush. Next, spray the stain again with plain distilled water and blot it with a clean dry cloth. As it is starting to dry, take a toothbrush and rough the nap of the couch. This keeps the microfiber soft. 

I'm so excited to have saved my couch from this and all future mishaps that are sure to happen.
