Remove ballpoint ink from a leather sofa
Submitted by Heather
Spray a little hairspray onto a cloth and dab the stain very gently. The alcohol in the hairspray will fade the ink and gradually remove it.
Be careful, though, that the spray isn't too harsh for the leather - as soon as you see it begin to dull, stop.
Spread some Vaseline (petroleum jelly) on afterwards to moisturise the leather.
Indispensible with a cream leather suite and a 5-year old in the same house!
