i gleaned this for you from the web:


Remove Ink Stains From:

Leather, Suede


On leather, apply a cleaner, 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. Caution: There is no guaranteed way to remove this stain from these materials.


you could try white vinegar too but test it on a hidden area first.

the dry cleaning agent is Tricoethelene, I think that is how you spell it, I use it for oil stains and is available, or was from the chemists and car spares shops as the garage trade use it in large quantities.


There are many different types of Ink and each one needs a different treatment.


Biro is best removed with a cotton bud being twirled over the line to draw the ink out, soak the cotton bud in Methalated spirits, renew tyhe cotton bud as it gets the ink out or it will spread to another area.


Thank god we have got somethinbg to get our teeth into for a change instead of bickering.

Yes it works quite well on other things too, it has to be held quite close or the solvent/propellant will atomize before it gets onto the surface. If this happens you just get pure laquer and that will not fetch the mark out, it is the solvent /propellant that removes the mark WD40 spray also works on some materials, as will many spray cans. worth remembering though k@lsb good tip.
