Remove Ink Stains From Leather Furniture With Rubbing Alcohol
When handling ink stains on leather furniture, the first thing you want to do is a patch test to ensure it responds well to the cleaning method.
You'll need a few supplies: a dry white cleaning cloth, a bowl, one bottle of leather conditioner, one bottle of rubbing alcohol, and cotton swabs.
Depending on how large the stain is, you can use the dry cloth or cotton swab to spot-test. Apply the rubbing alcohol, and dab a small hidden area of the furniture.
Once you notice a positive reaction, you can continue. Add the rubbing alcohol to the bowl, dip the cotton swab or cloth into it, and dab the stain.
Stick to the stain and work from the outside toward the center, which will stop it from spreading. Then, dip a new swab or cloth into the rubbing alcohol and dab the area again.
It’s vital to use a new cloth or swab so you don't restain your furniture. Continue dipping and blotting the swab until the ink is gone.
Finally, add a small amount of leather conditioner to the area for shine and smoothness, and allow it to completely air-dry.
