Ink. Leather. The two do not really go hand in hand but, sooner or later, it will happen. However, don’t worry, it’s not the end of the world. Here’s a simple guide on how to remove ink from your leather bag.
Take an hairspray that you surely already have in your bathroom. Perhaps, the smaller the bottle the better because it will be easier to redirect the spray over the specific mark of the bag.
Keep some cotton wool on hand to remove any excess and spray the product where the ink spot is. Let the hairspray sit for a minute but do not let it dry.
Rub the spot with paper towel and if it doesn’t come off, spray the product again and repeat the process 2 to 3 times.
If hairspray does not work, try directly with alcohol. Apply it on the spot and rub it with with a cotton swab. Continue then with a microfiber cloth. Repeat the process until the ink mark is gone.
