I can confirm that. Rubbing alcohol takes off ball point pen ink like magic.willywaxer said:Isopropanol is cheap, will not harm your leather (water is worse), and works 100% of the time.
Because it worked when regular cleaners didn't and I didn't know that it was the Isopropanol that got the ink out?willywaxer said:Why would you want to gum up your leather with the other ingredients in hairspray? The active ingredient in all these ink-removal products is a mild organic solvent like alcohol. Save your money and use the pure stuff without paying for and adding perfumes and other ingredients. Isopropanol is cheap, will not harm your leather (water is worse), and works 100% of the time.
Im not an expert at this but base on my experience it will depend on how long the ink has been there and what kind it is. If using alcohol use it sparingly as it has a tendency to dry up leather and eventually cause it to crack. If you are not sure I would consult leather shops if there's one close to you or any leather cleaners might be able to help out.Rookie2 said:Anybody aware of any nifty product that will remove a pretty good sized ink mark from my PS leather seat??
