Dye From Clothing on Leather Couch

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

Blue dye has transferred from my pajamas to my cream colored leather couch. Anyone know how to remove the dye stains?




Dye From Clothing on Leather Couch

I am not very sure, but would want you to take a small quantity of nail polish remover on cotton and wipe a tiny spot? This works effectively on most of the surfaces but hope it does not de-color your leather. Test it, it may work. (05/26/2005)
