It happened again. You were playing with your 3-year-old
daughter, and she somehow managed to snag a pen without you looking
and get it all over your brand new leather couch. But what's

got her for Easter on there too! Should you throw your couch
away and buy a new one? Not on our watch.

cloth to wipe off the end.

applications of the Ink Remover must be used. The average tends to

After the scrubbing has been completed, wash away the remaining
residue with Leather Cleaner (or a wipe). Step 6 may be repeated as
often as needed.
In order to protect the area from other stains or spills, apply
