Magic Eraser for Removing Ink From Leather

My children's school work got wet and the ink transferred to my light beige leather car seats. I could read the school work on my seats. I went to this site quickly before I left for work. I grabbed a few items suggested: alcohol, hairspray, soap and worked on the spots at red lights. Nothing worked.


I went into work and someone told me about Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. It's by the cleaning products in the store. It worked! No fading. I even tried it on a old rust spot on my sink I could never get out, and it worked. I had to submit this today.

If you have children, or really at all, you should not use the Magic Eraser. The reason it cleans so well is that it contains formaldehyde, which is a carcinogen. When you wipe off your bathroom fixtures, floors or toys, it leaves traces of the chemical behind. A lot of the commercial cleaners we use are very highlighted by the CBC program Marketplace.

Natural is the way to go. Vinegar, baking soda, or lemon are all safe and smell much better than any bottled meadow.

I tried using magic eraser on my purse that has ball point ink on it. I didn't touch it! I'm gonna try hairspray!

Tks for this tip. I used Magic Eraser on my green leather bag which had blue ball point pen on it. Totally removed it and the green leather was fine. Just put a little wax polish over it with a soft cloth. Good as new!

Yes magic erasers are great, just be careful it will take out the color. I found this out the hard way.
