Cleaning Pen Ink on a Suede Couch

June 24, 2013

Woman hands using a upholstery attachment to wash a purple suede couchMy 3 year old daughter put pen marks all over my suede couch and I took the Windex advice. It worked like a charm! I just sprayed Windex all over the area and wiped it with a dark towel (it's a dark couch) until all marks were gone! Worked great!

My grandson used an ink pen on my micro suede couch and Walmart glass cleaner did the trick it cleaned well enough that I'm satisfied not to punish his mom for not paying attention to him. Thanks

Deya, Try hairspray. Most hairsprays contain acetone, a chemical that will dissolve the ink. Spray it on then blot it up with a rag. It took an entire bottle of Final Net, but I once got red ink out of white carpeting.


If it leaves behind any sticky or crust from the hairspray, try some warm water or see if it is safe to use Woolite on your couch. Good luck!

Do NOT use hairspray!!! It locks the ink stain in. I used woolite & it totally removed blue ink pen from brown micro suede. But the little area where I first tried the hairspray, didn't all come out. But going over it w the woolite did remove most.
