Thanks,

You have dye transfer. Magic Erasers act like fine sandpaper and if they remove the dye they will also damage the finish. Use Maxi Clean (LTT) which is specifically designed for this job and then when you have removed it use Leather Protect which will protect your pale leather from dye transfer in the future

I slept on my newer dark leather couch and got very hot with a black t-shirt on. When I woke up, ink from my shirt was imprinted on the couch. Please somebody give me an idea of how to remove this.

Hello Rocky,

In regards to your leather stained sofa seeing that it is new, did you purchase a warranty on stains? If so, my advise would be to contact your warranty service and have this taken care of professionally and leave the problem in their hands. If you had not purchased a warranty then the problem lies on you.

My suggestion to you is you need to know what type of leather you own. Is it Aniline, Protected (pigmented)or Nubuck? Once your leather is identified then you can proceed with the correct steps in removing the transfer of silkscreen ink from your shirt.

If your leather is (Aniline):

Step 1. Strong Cleaner

Step 2. Leather Protection Cream

Dry between steps with hair dryer

If problem persists use: (Soft Remover/Cleaner)

Always finish job with Protection Cream

If your leather is (Protected/Pigmented):

Use the same steps as Aniline

If your leather is (Nubuck):

Step 1. Use Nubuck Cloth

Step 2. Apply Leather Degreaser

Step 3. Foam Cleaner

Step 4. Use Nubuck Cloth

Step 5. Apply Eco Protector

Dry in between steps with hair dryer

If problem persists call our service for

Hi,

Use this product to remove the stain - http://www.furnitureclinic.co.uk/LeatherStainRemover.htm

Following the below instructions;

Never apply directly to the leather.

Depending upon the size of the stain use either the cotton wool bud, cotton ball or cotton cloth to remove the stain.

Dab the stain gently and as the stain is removed from the leather the cotton will absorb it.

Rotate the cotton to stop the stain from spreading.
