Stain on Dash Of MH

Last fall we stayed in our MH for about (6) weeks and during that time, I placed one of those 500 sheet packs of copy paper on the dash. When we got ready to winterize, I lifted the packet of paper up and discovered that there were either mildew spots or ink transfer spots on the dash from the packet of paper. The dash material is a beige colored leather type material and was wondering what the suggestions would be for getting it clean. Thanks in advance.

What is the dash material? There is a good chance it is ink transfer, especially if the ink is soybean derivative. There is a product called "OOPS" (looks like a can of lighter fluid) that will remove many difficult spots, but I'd try it in a concealed spot first.

turtle wax makes a spray type upholstery cleaner that is great on So-Called leather dash material....if still stained try good old fashioned hair spray in a test area because it works great at ink removal on fabric

Another thing that's worth a try is Dow Tub and Tile scrubbing bubbles. This stuff also works well on carpets to clean a spot. Test in a hidden place first.

One thing that I have tried is the Mildew/stain remover from Camping World. I sprayed it on full strength, let it sit a little, then scrubbed with a paper towel. A little of the stain/mildew did come off but no much. I'm going to try some of the above suggestions mentioned above along with a semi-stiff nylon brush this weekend. Will post the results. Thanks everyone for the suggestions given so far.
