If your child gets a hold of a Sharpie Marker or Crayon and you don't know what to do..look no further!! WD-40 works wonders! When our two year old got a hold of a sharpie marker and drew all over the couch I was at a loss for words. I thought I was going to have to throw away my $3000.00 couch. However, 1 can of WD-40 and an old rag made my couch look like nothing had even happened.

Get a can of WD-40 and an old rag and or some papertowels.

Spray the WD-40 on the rag and then apply in a circular motion to the couch or hardwood floor that has been "drawn on." Softly scrub the marker.

Get a clean rag and continue to wipe away the marker until it is all gone.

Things You Will Need

  • WD-40
  • Rag


Test in a small area first. My 2.5 year old drew all over our suede couch and after doing this treatment when I was at a loss as to what to do I was amazed. You can't even tell that she ever drew on the couch.
