Removing Ink from Leather

How do you get ink off of leather furniture?

Removing Ink from Leather

Hello, first post. Read all the suggestions and recommend starting with mildest solvent first. Colored leather will be ruined with acetone/ nail polish remover. I am cleaning a Dooney now and a orange citrus cleaner seems to be doing well. Always apply in inconspicuous spot first and have another dry cloth/paper towel available so it doesn't get too wet or go the wrong way. WD-40 on a Q-tip / Chap-stick/ Spray-n-wash/ alcohol/ toothpaste (not gel) would be less chance of making the problem worse than the more aggressive solvents/abrasives.


Start with the Chap-stick or WD-40 before any solvents as this will minimize removing the thin protective coating on the leather making it more porous. Good Luck! (10/29/2010)

After many treatments, we tried everything from WD-40, skin so soft, soft scrub, spray-n-wash, alcohol, nothing worked until we tried the hair spray! Wow, did this ever work. Good recommendation. Thanks. (12/06/2010)
