Tips to Remove Ink from Leather?

Tips to Remove Ink from Leather?

Some homes have leather couches and seats. Which I find appealing as leather keeps the body cool in the summer rather than heating it up. I understand how devious tiny children can be because I am a mother of small children myself. It has been giving me a lot of trouble because my three-year-old kid has drawn pen ink lines on the leather couch.

My neighbor informed me that she frequently removes these kinds of marks since she, too, has a four-year-old daughter who enjoys writing. Which also marks the leather couch indiscreetly.

My neighbor advised me on how to clean it.

  1. Blot the Stain: Use a clean, dry cloth to blot the ink stain gently. Avoid rubbing, as it can spread the ink.
  2. Apply Alcohol: Dab a small amount of isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) onto a cotton ball or cloth and gently apply it to the stain. Be careful not to oversaturate the leather.
  3. Wipe Clean: After the ink has lifted, wipe the area with a clean, damp cloth to remove any residue.
  4. Condition the Leather: Apply a leather conditioner to moisturize and restore the leather’s natural oils.

Remember to test any cleaning method on an inconspicuous area first to ensure it doesn’t damage the leather. If you’re unsure or if the stain is extensive, it’s best to consult a professional cleaner.
