Oh no, ink on my upholstery

Just noticed THREE ink stains on my ultra leather couch. I've tried alcohol wipes and a mild abrasive and they are lighter, but not gone. Anyone have any suggestions?

The ultraleather web site gives instructions for ink stains. I always look to the manufacturer first for solutions.

When I was a luxury coach tech, I used Acrosol. I got right from the dealership, but maybe a local dealership will have some and sell it to you. It has worked on almost every RV surface, and cleaned them well. Obviously, test a spot somewhere out of sight. Good luck

Google to make sure, but I've heard hairspray will remove ink from fabric.

I tried everything suggested and nothing worked, however two things worked in my favor. 1) some thing's lightened the ink and 2) the marks are towards the rear of the cushion so they are hidden by pillows. Perhaps over time the marks will fade completely, if not, I can live with them!

On one of your trips through a town with a major furniture store, stop in and talk to them. When I bought my leather couch for the house they gave me a cleaning kit. One of the special cleaners was for ink, which thankfully I've never had to use. I bet that it would work on your spots, since that is what it is specifically developed for! Good luck!

Ultra Leather is polyurethane on a nylon backing. True leather cleaners may or may not work well.

Try GooGone ... in an inconspicuous place first. Seems to work where other products fail.

We use 409 first to get off what we can (per Ultra Leather's site). I have had some good luck once it is faded with Mr. Clean Magic Eraser... but we use a light touch. Our Ultra Leather is light. If yours is darker, Magic Eraser may be too strong. Testing an inconspicuous spot would be important.

Following is from their site.
  • Clean regularly with soap and water
  • Wipe up spills as soon as they occur
  • Alcohol based cleaners such as Fantastik® and Formula 409® can be used to clean and remove stains
  • Sanitize using disinfectants such as 1:5 bleach/water solution
  • For stubborn stains, wipe the stain off with isopropyl (rubbing alcohol)
    as soon as possible
  • Thoroughly rinse all solution residue with clean water
  • Air dry


Good luck!

We've had luck with hairspray and hand sanitizer. It's all dependent on the ink's chemical makeup.

That's the best advice.
I used "Goof-off" to remove ink marks, which it did, and also removed the finish from the leather.
