How to Remove Ink Stains

Leather or Suede

Ink stains on leather or suede may be permanent, but try the following steps before you throw out the item! Caution: There is no guaranteed way to remove this stain from these materials.

  • On leather, apply a cleaner, such as Tannery Vintage Leather Cleaner & Conditioner.
  • On suede, try gingerly applying a dry-cleaning solvent. Dab it on with a clean cloth, after testing on a hidden seam.
  • Allow to air dry.
  • On leather only, follow with Tannery Vintage Leather Cleaner & Conditioner or Fiebing's Saddle Soap to condition the leather.
