Before you do anything, try Ivory Liquid dish soap.
A) If you've used alcohol and windex already,try those again, using a clean white terry cloth. If you observe the color blue on the rag, after either application, continue to use that application repeatedly until the blue color has been completely removed.
B) If A doesn't work, get a bottle of ammonia, and make a 1:5 dilution. That's 3 Tablespoons of ammonia for every 15 Tablespoons of water. Wipe the seat with this solution. If it comes off fast, then add more water. You want to remove it gradually.
C) If B doesn't work, get a bottle of Shout. Spray Shout on the seat. Wait 10 minutes. Next wash the seat with Ivory Liquid soap and then rinse thoroughly.
* Try these trials on an isolated portion of the seat that's not visible to the public, at first. If the above applications don't work, use a dilute solution of bleach. Once color is removed, either spray the seat with Scotch Guard, or find a replacement white seat that's easier to maintain its color. Next, either sell that white headache on ebay at a reduced price, or donate it!
