After reading the post below, why do "highlighter marks" show up on ponies?  I think...

it's the mane leaking onto the pony
22 (48.9%)
it's the kids coloring on the pony with highlighters.
8 (17.8%)
it's little brothers using magic trying to ruin the awesomeness (closet bronies)
1 (2.2%)
it's something I figured out and I promise to post a reply telling what I think it actually is.
6 (13.3%)
it's something we haven't figured out yet.  Who can really know the truth of anything?

I just bought a tooth whitener at Walgreens today, the kind that uses light. In going to try it on a specific area and see if that works.  I'll probably mask off the surrounding area and get it to just shine on the marks... We will see!!

I would be careful with that as it has the same properties as hydrogen peroxide and some acne creams; both of which can discolour a pony.

I'm going to guess this would also apply to customs rehaired with certain hair colors, right?  :blink: Or are Katsilk and other hair brands more well made to prevent this?

The colour fast issue is something that happens in most nylon hair products to do with how the dye takes as far as I am aware. In fact its not just nylon hair, neon colours can be a problem in just about any product. However its possible that different manufacturers treat their hair different ways or use a slightly different process which causes less or even more of an issue.

Is there any other cure than sunfading for pink highlighter marks? my G2 Basket Surprise Sweet Berry has some tiny neon pink marks and so far nothing has removed them, not even nail polish remover. However I have heard you MUST NOT sunfade Sweet Berry (she's light purple) so is there anything else I can try?

Not really :( If you have tried acetone and magic eraser, sun fading is the only real bet remaining.

I have a Bright Eyes still in her box never opened that has a bright pink mark on her leg, so it has to be something other than marker.

Are there any resources out there to help prevent colour leaking/fading to begin with? And plastic breakdowns?

You can try www.mlppreservationproject.com - it has lots of information :)

The only way to prevent the colour leaking is to stop wet/damp hair pressing against the pony's body. Or if the pony lives in a slightly humid environment then by placing something between the hair and the body.

Nylon hair is already treated and pretty colour fast with the exception of a couple of colours. To increase the colour fast on the hair you have to use a vinegar treatment and while it does help it does not hold the colour completely and you have to be careful when doing it as it can initially cause a significant amount of dye to leak.
