OK, I now have my first "boo-boo" on my X's interior and am eager to remove it! My 5 y/o jumped out of the back seat with his "police ticket book" in hand as well as a black ink pen, minus the cap. In an effort to make a quick capture of his imaginary bad guy, he put about a 3 inch ink mark on the back of the passenger seat. I have tried to remove ink marks from leather and vinyl in the past with no luck.

Does any have any good advice on removing ink pen marks?

Thanks to all for the Tips:)

Here is what I have tried, in the order they were tried and the results:

1. 409 - Lightened the stain a little
2. Hairspray - Lightened the stain a little more than 409
3. Hydrogen proxide - No noticeble change
4. Woolite - No noticebale change
5. Baking Soda paste (with water) - slight lightening

After the first 2 items, the ink stain was pretty light, but not gone. After trying all five items it still isn't gone. From some of the reading I have done, I may have "set" the stain with the 409. Also, several articles stated that some inks just never come off of leather.

My next step is to try the Zaino leather cleaner and treatment since I have already ordered it.

Well - here is my final post on the ink mark. I received the Zaino leather cleaner and immediately went to work. No luck in removing the stain completely. The majority of what I have tried has lightened the stain. So much so, except me no one really notices. After having read quite a bit about ink on leather in the past few weeks I believe careful consideration of first treatments make a difference. I believe my initial use of 409 probably helped "set" the stain. Next time I would start with hairspray (let it sit for a few minutes to break up the ink) and wipe gently once then follow with hydrogen proxide (soak a white piece of cloth and apply like a bandage and leave on for 5 - 10 minutes). After the hydrogen proxide, I would then for the first time scrub it with a cleaner.
