Angry Ink on white interior

Any thoughts on the best way to remove ball point pen ink from white bolsters? Of course its right on top where its very visible. I've already tried alcohol, a small amount of soft scrub, a couple of vinyl cleaners and it might have lightened a little but still sticks out like a sore thumb. Just am worried about going overboard and making it worse. Never knew ink was so stubborn. Thanks

Contact your local detail shop and ask them what they use. I just bought a new truck and there was a pen mark on the leather steering wheel. They had a guy come out from the detail shop with some stuff on a rag, and after about 5 minutes of rubbing the mark was gone. I don't know what he used, but I am sure a car detailer would know. It is worth a try.

Try mineral spirits or if that doesn't work I use BLEACH WHITE.

Default Ink removal

I went to a leather furniture store called
The Leather Center.

They wrote all over a white leather
sofa right in front of me. Then they
took there special cleaner and took it all
off in less then two minute's.

So a good leather store might be a good

Good Luck

Greased Lightning

Got Ink on the back of a bolster last season and this took it out when nothing else would.

This **** works. Buy it at Walmart.

Good Luck

I know this is going to sound odd, but spit on your figure and rub hard. Has worked for me before.

Put your best foot forward!
