    My dog.. my sweet little dog....

    and i must keep repeating that or else i will loose my mind....lol

    My dog ate a sharpie marker on the couch while I was doing dishes, she grabbed it off the table and started chewing away.

    I now have a blue mark about the size of a dime n the arm of my beige microfiber couch

    Does anyone have any solutions for removing the ink stain?

    Test your fabric before you try this, but finger nail polish remover might work. Remember to blot and rub towards the center of the stain.
