Ink on Leather

I have kids.  Many kids.  OK, only three kids, but if often seems like there are so many more of them...

The other day, my youngest, who is 4 years old, took a ball point pen and proceeded to draw all over our leather ottoman.  Oops.  Pretty blue ink scribbled all over the ugly brown leather.  At least, that's how I'm guessing he thought of it.

But, Google is my friend:
How to Remove Ink from Leather

Rubbing alcohol.  It really does work!

Apparently, I have trouble with leather products lately...
