How can I remove the ink stain marks from leather car seat?

If it is on a pigmented leather (which, in car seats, it still is), then the first thing you should try is an ink stick. The freshness of the ink the more you chance to withdraw. It's a good idea to have in your home if you have pale skin and children! If an ink stick does not work not a solvent solvent should be used and it may also remove finish and pigment so is best left to experts. Hairspray sometimes works, but may also be the case much more serious because it can spread the ink over a bigger area. Thinner or other solvents to remove the finish and pigment which must be replaced. DO NOT USE Baby wipes as theyare the worst thing you can use on a leather sofa as they break down the finish and will eventually ruin your suite. Old ink will be harder to remove than new ink and may mean the use of solvents which will also remove the finish line. This is probably best left to experts. Silicones are the worst thing to use as they form a coating on the surface leather, which will not allow moisture to get to the leather and will eventually break all the finish down and cracked. Leather needs water and should not be protected against it. Rubbing alcohol can sometimes damage the finish if not used with care
