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)

THANK YOU Jeangnome. You just saved our tan leather couch! (10/26/2004)
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)
The antibacterial gel worked AMAZINGLY well getting some large ink stains off the tan leather seats of my wife's Jaguar! Big red stains and they're gone!
Thanks for the great tip!! (12/03/2005)
I tried several things then stain stick and antibacterial moisterizer together and rubbed took a while but most is gone now. (03/26/2006)
