As silly as it sounds, try hair spray.

Afterwards, reclean with Leather Cleaner and then apply Leather Conditioner.

I don't tell my wife this is what I'm using her hair spray for.

She thinks I'm using it to keep my mane o' graying locks in place.

If she finds out, she'll make me buy my own.

Can you 'hair spray ladys'...I mean, 'lads', explain how to use it to remove pen marks? I assume this is on finished leather. Thanks.

Alfisti,

It's an old laundry-room trick that's popular here in the States for ball-point pen ink on clothing fabric... aerosol hair spray has solvents that dissolve the ink and thus you can use it on many surfaces besides cloth.

Spray-on, wipe off; launder; etc.

Sometimes several applications are necessary.

It generally does not work on gel or other inks.

I actually did buy a can of inexpensive hair spray specifically for my laundry cabinet... I do my own laundry, and I'm not afraid to admit it.
