How to Get Pen Off Leather

Leather furniture adds a sleek, elegant look to any room. However, it is expensive and can be tough to clean. Pens are among the most common writing implements, and where there’s a pen, there’s a risk for an ink spill. Whether a pen leaks onto the couch or your toddler decides your favorite chair is a great place to learn to sketch, you might wonder if there is any good way to remove pen marks from leather. Thankfully, Tub O’ Towels can help. Our heavy duty wipes are designed to tackle the toughest challenges, including removing pen marks on leather.

How to Get Pen Off Leather Couch (The Hard Way)

A quick Google search for “how to remove ink from leather couch” or “how to get ink off leather” will provide numerous commercial products, from leather cleaner to saddle soap. In addition, many people prefer a home remedy such as rubbing alcohol, non-acetone nail polish, or even a mix of oil and vinegar. While these products may eventually work, they are time-consuming. If you would like to give one a try, here are the basic steps:

  1. Spot test an inconspicuous area of the leather.
  2. Use a soft rag or Q-tip to apply your selected product to the ink stain.
  3. Let the product set for 15 minutes.
  4. Use a clean, damp rag to scrub away the stain.
  5. Carefully dry with a fresh microfiber towel.
  6. Use a leather conditioner to restore suppleness and avoid cracking.
  7. If traces of the ink remain, use an ink stick designed for leather to hide it.
