Accidentally made a small blue pen mark on the backrest of my observer seat the other day :o
Any ideas on a product that would safely remove it?

Try a little bug and tar remover... is you vinyl the old style - leather like or is it the very new type?

I have some Leatherique prestine clean that I use on stuff like that. I actually bought it for my leather interiors on my bimmers, and I have used it for ink removal. Somewhat expensive as automotive products go, but not so expensive as far as boat detailing products go I'm discovering!

Hairspray has actually been known to dissolve ink. Little bit on a rag or towel to wipe it off, then clean off the hairspray with water and 303 cleaner. Then 303 protectant. Good luck.

Majic Eraser? That thing works on everything. If you do use it on your ulpostery be sure to condition it right away after using.

If hairspray doesnt work and a magic eraser doesnt work.......try some lighter fluid on a rag......Then wash and treat the spot with some 303.

On my '96, one of my buddy's passed out the night before and was used as a canvas for lewd drawings in Sharpie markers. The next morning, we went out for a ski run and the artistic works were quickly transfered from his back to my vinyl. Nothing would take it out, but after a solid day in the sun, the drawings did disappear. My guess is the suggestions above will all work to lighten the ink. The sun will make it disappear once the stain is lightened.

I'll add another vote for hairspray. Use magic eraser only as a last resort. It will probably remove the ink, but will remove a thin layer of the vinyl, too.

Alcohol will dissolve ink. Don't waste the drinkin' kind - an alcohol prep pad should do it.
