How to remove Ink stains from Leather?

Ink Stains on White Leather and pink leather purse. How to clean leather- Who Who Carpet CleaningIf you spilled some ink on your leather couch or your child decides to use the leather couch as their drawing board. Be it your luxurious leather couch or your favorite purse or handbag.  Ink is a dyeing agent, thus has the ability to re-color your couch and set in.  Ink stains on a leather couch are bad news. It’s nearly impossible to get ink out of leather.

You need to act quickly to remove the stains, the longer it stays the harder it becomes to remove! Ink stains on leather are fairly hard to remove and present some difficulties, but none that you shouldn’t be able to master with a little DIY or professional help.

The process for removing ink from leather is as follows:

1) Use a clean cloth, to remove the excess ink off. If it is fairly new, use a damp cloth to dab the stain and remove as much as you can.
Caution: Be careful not to spread the ink stains.

2) Take a clean white cloth or paper towel and dampen it with some rubbing alcohol.

3) Firstly, wipe an unnoticeable part of your leather couch with the rubbing alcohol moistened cloth to check for color transfer. If the dye from the leather transfers on to the cloth, do not proceed as you may end up causing more damage. It is best to call professional leather cleaners.

4) If the color does not transfer, dab the stains with the rubbing alcohol moistened cloth working from the outside in. Again, DAB, do not rub as this will spread the stain.

5) After dabbing a couple of times, you sho9uld notice that the ink from the couch is transferring onto to the cloth. Use fresh pieces of cloth, as you do not want the stains transferring back onto the couch.

6) You should see the transfer of the stain from the leather to the cloth. Regularly change the cloth you are using, otherwise, you may transfer the ink from the cloth back to the leather. Continue the process until there is no more stain transfer.

7) If the stain still persists, Call leather cleaning professionals in as soon as possible to remove the existing stains. Be sure to mention to them the products you have used to remove the stain.

8) Lastly, apply a leather conditioner or moisturiser generously as rubbing alcohol can be quite drying, which may lead to cracks.
