Someone drew on the outside of my (expensive!) pencil case with a black ball point pen. How can I get it off? I have already tried detergent, Ajax, and Napisan (powder bleach). Please help!!

  1. use hairspray with cotten balls. keep spraying the hairspray and cleaning off with the cotton until it is all off. the pen will actually rise to the surface so you have to spray a few times. perhaps no more then 5 or 6.

  2. dab a cotton ball in rubbing alcohol and wipe the surface with it. It should remove the ballpoint ink. You may have to repeat this several times with a fresh cotton ball soaked in alcohol. Do not get the case near a hot surface or use anything hot on it as it will set the ink.
