I have biro/ink stains on my sofa. What's the best way to get out the stain without damaging the material or colour of the sofa?

Answered by: Annette King, cleaning expert

Spray a little hairspray onto the stain (don't go mad with it), wait about 45 seconds and dab with white paper tissue until it is all absorbed.

Never rub or scrub!

Repeat the process until the stain has gone.
