I have an ink mark on my brand new shearling lamb coat. It almost looks like it is from a felt tip pen. Any help on how to remove the mark would be greatly appreciated.

I am not sure if this is safe for a natural fur coat but, U might try it on a bit not visable first. My sons were forever coming home with ball point pen makers all over their white dress shirts when they were in school. A little bit of hair spray and a very clean white cotton rag removed all traces of ink.

I have a pale pink beige shearling handbag and have just noticed some stains on the outside of the bag. Do not know how long they've been there for. Do not know what the stains are from food, drink, etc. Any tips on what would be safe to try to see if the stains can be removed successfully please.

Is this real shearling leather, or synthetic shearling cloth?

Real leather- use a suede brush and see if the stains will brush off. Try an art gum eraser from the craft store, work the stains over with it and brush away the crumbs. If the stains appear greasy/oily, sprinkle baby powder on them, let sit overnight, and brush well to remove the powder. If you do not have a suede brush, a stiff clean old hairbrush or even an old toothbrush will work.


Synthetic- treat the stains by riubbing in Dawn liquid dish detergent, and wash on the gentle ctcle of your washer. Stuff the purse with crumpled plastic bags to retain its shape, and air dry.

I have gotten a beautiful shearling vintage coat, however, it has a terrible odor in the entire coat. Anyone have any suggestions?

Put a tablespoon full or two of coffee grounds (right from the can) in several envelopes and stuff in the pockets and sleeves, and pin to the lining. Put all in a plastic bag and let set a week or so and that should remove the smell. I have used this method for many things, even cat pee on a worn hardwood floor when nothing else would work to remove the smell.
