Leather interior on your car adds a luxurious appeal to the vehicle, but when there is an ink spot on the seat, it diminishes the appearance. Whether your toddler used the backseat as an art easel or a pen exploded in your back pocket, the ink doesn't have to become a permanent part of the seat. Remove the ink the right way to effectively get it off without compromising the integrity of the leather.
Dampen a soft cloth with warm water. Gently wipe over the ink spot, removing as much as you can. Avoid wiping too hard or you risk harming the leather.
Moisten a clean, soft cloth with rubbing alcohol. Blot the alcohol onto the ink. Let it sit for 30 minutes to effectively dissolve the ink.
Blot up the ink stain with a clean, soft cloth. Apply more alcohol and continue blotting until the ink is gone.
Mix together 1 qt. of warm water with ¼ cup distilled white vinegar. Dip a clean, soft cloth into the vinegar mixture and wring it out well. Use the rag and vinegar solution to thoroughly rinse the affected area of the leather.
Wipe the leather with a dry, soft cloth to remove excess moisture.
