    try hair spray
    if that doesnt work get gunwash :wink: my Oh used this to get biro pen out of my second hand cream leather suite, its a chemical used on cars, you only need a tiny amount and can buy it from anywhere that sells car cleaning products like halfords ect, its great for taking anything out

    hope this helps

    Getting dye out of a leather couch - Black dye was transferred onto my beige leather couch. Thought I would need a professional to come out, but a carpet specialist told me to try using Windex with a soft scrub brush, rinse well & then follow with a leather conditioner. Saved me big bucks

    Leather stain - Do not use hairspray on leather furniture...It just ruined my leather ottoman!

    Removing stains on white leather - I have just removed black hair dye (a lot of it) and blue felt tip pen mark from my white leather sofa with hairspray. Use it sparingly. Do one mark at a time. Spray it on and leave it for a few seconds, then dab at the stain with a clean, dry, preferably white cloth or white kitchen paper...Do not rub! Don't allow the hairspray to dry and when the stain has been removed, use your usual leather conditioner. I use Wizz (in the UK). Before being advised to use the hairspray, I had tried a variety of other things without success. The hairspray worked instantly. I also found that 'cheap' hairspray worked better than the top brands. :?

    Black dye on a cream leather sofa - My beautiful new sofa was marked by a black leather computer case that had been set (unknowingly) in a bit of water and the ugly imprint looked permanent. I found your very useful site and tried three of the suggestions made here. Hair spray did nothing, nor did Windex. The acetone-free nail polish remover applied with a clean white towelette worked right away. But, beware. There is a cost, at least for some kinds of leather. While the marks can be rubbed off this way, the protective finish comes off also, leaving the treated area softer and a little lighter than the rest of the surface. I found you can order some very good products online to professionally repair leather and restore the finish. You might want to check out Leather Magic.

    Oh shoot hunny wish you'd have left it to get some more replies - That nail varnish remover advise sounds like a hit from reading it up for you!

    I'm sure you can get a professional to fix it - costy maybe but you shouldn't be able to notice it ever happend & it will save your couch :hugs:

    Yeah I have cherish with my sofa too, where did you get your sofa from Dionne?

    Perhaps you could get in touch with them and ask if they suppy cherish or can help in any other way.
