Important tip: acne medication removes pen marks from dolls

Jim says:

200712201011I thought this was a great tip for all the craphounds out there. If you found a great doll (or perhaps plastic toy) that has gone a few rounds with a kid and a pen, this tip to use acne cream and sun to remove the ink is a godsend. It would be great if anyone knew the chemistry behind why this actually works. The before and after pictures of the subject/victim are unbelievable.
