You’re bound to get ink stains on leather couches, leather purses, and leather jackets. You can carry pens around in your bags while you lounge on the sofa and make lists.
Good news! Ink stains can be removed from the leather. It is easier to remove ink stains that have been discovered earlier than later. The stain removal process for leather ink stains on suede or vinyl is the same regardless of whether you use it on smooth leather or vinyl.
Look at COIT’s Guide to Removing Ink Stains from Leather for step-by-step instructions.
- Use rubbing alcohol to moisten a cotton ball.
- Before removing the ink stain, do a “spot check.” Locate a hidden leather area to see the effects of ink stain removal. Use a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol to coat a small leather area. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
- Rub the leather ink stain with the cotton ball using rubbing alcohol. Use a circular motion to rub the ink stain gently. Do not scrub. The link should gradually fade.
- Apply a little leather conditioner to the area. This will restore moisture and shine.
There are other methods to remove ink stains from leather.
You can try other methods if the rubbing alcohol doesn’t work.
A white eraser can be used to remove ink stains from leather couches. It works well with the White Magic Eraser, which can be found at Wal-Mart or Target. This may lighten or remove the color depending on the type and age of the ink.
Hairspray can remove ink from leather but not from other ink stains. Hairspray contains alcohol, but the other ingredients can cause damage to the leather.
