How do I remove ballpoint pen ink from vinyl?

I purchased a really cute purse recently from Queenbee, after finding out about this company from a previous askmefi post.
I've had it about a week now. It's cream colored vinyl (bad choice, given that I'm a clumsy, mucky pup) and I've somehow managed to get small but noticeable ballpoint pen stains all over it.
I've tried soapy water, and I've tried rubbing alcohol. No luck.
Any suggestions? Someone suggested hairspray, but I'm worried about ending up with a sticky mess of a purse, still covered in ballpoint pen. Has anyone here actually tried this and had a successful result?
