Among the favorite tools of children is the very bright, and very permanent, Sharpie. No matter what color your couch is, a Sharpie stain can be very unsightly. Fortunately, these stains are relatively simple to combat. Homeowners should spray the stain with WD-40 and then apply pressure to the stain with a cloth. You can also choose to dab the stain with fingernail polish or with a baking soda and water paste.

While less permanent than Sharpies, glue can certainly leave a messy stain on your carpet or couch. Parents looking at a glue stain will want to let the glue dry, and then remove large residue using a butter knife. Once as much of the glue as possible is removed, you’ll want to wet a cloth with white vinegar and liquid dish soap and then blot the area clean.
