Clive when I first showed my ex work mate the Testa he sat in it and with a biro in his pocket and left me with a 3 inch mark. I have some Connolly hide cleaner which if you keep rubbing will eventually bring it off. Try these:

Buy some Zymol leather cleaner. It is excellent for removing stuff like this.

Edit: And use a soft brush to 'scrub' gently. I use the sort of brush you use to buff up shoes after polishing - you know, the sort you can get in a set of two.

Typex would probably work.

I bought some cheap and cheerful leather cleaner Car Plan Leather Valet, tried a bit of it last week and........nothing! Waste of time!:thumbsdow

Got given some specialist "ink remover from leather" stuff, and went out to try it yesterday and.........the mark had gone! Disappeared! I can only think that the Leather Valet needed time to soak in!:thumbsup: So! the cheap and cheerful did the trick, but it just needed a bit of time!


BTW Thanks for all the suggestions, except maybe the Typex and milk ones!:tongue3: :tongue3: :tongue3:

you ungrateful so & so.

milk is exceptionally (and surprisingly) good for removing biro marks and stains from upholstery, shirts etc etc.
