Leather Care Tips

Well, I just completely fucked up my birthday evening. Like an idiot (because I am notoriously clumsy about spilling and things of that nature) I decided to do my work on the new leather furniture that we bought in January. I, of course, got a pen mark on the couch. I ran to the computer to look up removal tips, but before I could tell Steven what to use, he'd decided to try finger nail polish remover. It did remove the ink, but it also removed the color from the leather. Now we have a discolored spot on the couch. I've been so careful about not getting anything on the couch and I should have known it was a dumb idea to get on the couch with a pen. Stupid, stupid, stupid. Tomorrow I guess we'll have to see what a leather care place can suggest about fixing the discoloration. Fuck. And that furniture was so expensive, too. :-(

Btw, if you get ink on leather, try hair spray or a pencil eraser. It will supposedly bring the ink right out without damaging the leather.

I just did the same thing, except it was my husband that made me use the rubbing alcohol.... what did you do for the discoloration?
