One of the most difficult stains to remove from the interior or lining of an accessory is ink.
The reason why ink is so problematic is because of the number of variables involved and the thousands of combinations of those variables.
In this blog post, we discuss those variables, caution against the use of various “miracle cures” that can be found on the internet and illustrate, through two examples, the results that can be achieved — one almost completely and the other not at all (because of the type of lining involved).
If you’re going to clean your leather or leather trimmed handbag, purse, wallet or backpack at home with any type of “cleaning product, we’d suggest that you proceed with caution.
If you, nonetheless, proceed to use one of those “cleaning products” and the results produced are not as expected, we’d suggest that you ignore any advice you might fin=d on the internet on how to fix the problem caused by one of those “cleaning products”.
Because there is an element of experimentation involved with using these cleaning products. The outcome is often a crap-shoot. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t. You’ve got a 50:50 chance of getting it wrong and the consequent results can be disastrous.
And if you take the advice of some internet-based Helpful Heloise, you’ll probably just compound the problem.
In this blog post, we illustrate this point with a Prada leather handbag with an ink stain that was cleaned at home with one such “cleaning product” and then further complicated by poor internet advise. Then we show you the results that can be achieved with the application of the right skills, judgement, products and processes.
