    Default Can an Ink Stain be Removed?

    I tried to search for post on ink stains before I started this thread but unfortunately vbulletin searches ignore 3 letter words like "ink"

    I am thinking about bidding on this Coach Legacy Lily. It is new but has a 1" ink stain on it. The EBay starting price is good ($199) because of the ink. I wouldn't bid much higher than that on it but I wonder if I could lighten the stain enough to where it isn't noticeable? What would you use, the Magic Eraser? Would I stand a chance of lightening it enough or should I pass on this bag?

    That looks like a Legacy bag and I know you are not supposed to use cleaner or conditioner on Legacy leather. You could try a white eraser or the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser but I don't know what the outcome would be.
    Do you live near a Coach outlet? They have some pretty amazing deals there.

    You can try some types of solvents or maybe try blotting with rubbing alcohol with a white cotton towel and see if it tranfers over to the towel. I dont know if itll hurt the leather in anyway though. So....good luck.

    Go to DIY homefix and get a "stain remover' for leather.
