Clean Ink Stains Off Tan Leather

Some how or another, my wallet got ink all over it and it looks really tacky when I carry it around (it's a wallet-on-a-string). Anyway, it is a light tan colored wallet with black ink soaked into it. Any one out there have a trickey way of getting out the ink without damaging the wallet?

Try antibacterial hand gel. Rub on the stain and let it sit for a few minutes and rub off. This worked really well on my granddaughter's tennis shoes. (10/20/2004)

You are very welcome Kim. I learned this hint quite by accident at work. I am a janitor and clean banks, Dr's ofices etc. I was trying to remove adhesive from a glass door and just happened to grab the antibacterial gel. It worked like a charm! Now I try it on just about every stain or sticky mess I can find. I've used it on many different surfaces and it hasn't harmed any of them. So glad I could help. (10/26/2004)

The antibacterial gel worked wonderful on my mother's tan leather couch. She had purchased expensive leather cleaning solutions and nothing had worked until we tried the gel. Thanks. (05/24/2005)

You could try a little hairspray. Spray some into the cap and using a tissue or cotton wool, dab gently and the ink stain should come out. I tried this on my cream leather sofa, worked great. (07/06/2005)

Thanks so much for the hairspray tip. My daughter wrote all over my tan leather chair and the hairspray removed it instantly! (10/30/2005)
