If the Goo-Gone does not remove it, I would spray a little WD-40 on a clean rag and then gently rub the ink and see if it will disolve the ink. I don't think the WD-40 will harm the leather. If it does remove the ink, I would afterwards clean the leather with a good leather cleaner/conditioner to remove any residue of the WD-40. I have found that it cleans a lot of items -- I have used it before to get small grease stains (tracked in by a mechanic) out of my carpet --- completely removed them and no evidence left afterwards.

The Goo-Gone or WD-40 should remove most of the ink, however many times there will always be a faint stain that can be seen. If you try to remove this completely, you will pull the stain originally put into the leather causing a more noticeable issue.

The Ultraleather web site on Specs suggests using Fantastic or Formula 409 cleaner for stains.

Ultraleather is made from urethane and could be damaged by the solvents contained in Goo Gone or WD-40. If you attempt to clean Ultraleather with one of these products, I would try it on a hidden area first.

Sometimes isopropyl alcohol or ethanol alcohol will remove most of the ink. Depends on the ink formulation, though.

We've always used Goo Gone, hair spray, alcohol, etc. repeatedly until most of the ink is gone. Just keep trying things until something begins to work, then repeat until the spot if faint. Ultraleather is not wimpy - it can hold up under most solvents as long as you don't pour them on. Dampen a cloth with the solvent and rub. I wouldn't try acetone or MEK, though, even though they are pretty much guaranteed to dissolve the ink. They will "melt" nearly all synthetics!

HERE is a product that is supposed to do the job, but I've never used it.

Have you tried Lexol ph Leather Cleaner?



It's specifically made to clean leather. You can probably call Lexol to see if they have any suggestions.

Ink I believe is going to be a tough one.
