Try some goof-off maybe? But make sure to test it on a hidden part of the sofa.

See above. This stuff will remove pretty much anything. Just make sure to test it somewhere you cant see it.

Try some of the stuff for leather jackets an if you live near a upholster (sp?) they will sell you a small bottle of what they use, look in the yellow pages for French polisher an you should find one.

First try rubbing alcohol. Less likely to work, but also less likely to damage the leather. Then move up to WD-40, (yes it does remove some stains and yes then you have to remove the WD-40) goof-off or other solvents. Test on the back where it doesn't show first.

Leather is a P.I.T.A. to get stains out of. You could also try some of that industrial engine degreaser. But like everyone else has stated, test it somewhere else so if it does do something bad you won't see it.

agreed... took black ink out of my black leather jacket at one time... but I had to let it sit for a little while before it started to come up, and use repeated tries to get it all out.
