Yup, I did it, I got ballpoint pen ink on my leather seats. Seems while I was framing the kitchen walls in the house, I ran out to the hardware store with a blue ballpoint pen in my back pocket with the cap off. The seat has ink all over it -- though no punctures, thank goodness.

I tried Lexol leather cleaner and the VW leather cleaner but no dice. Anyone know of a product that will remove ballpoint pen ink from our leather seats without destroying the leather?

Ugh... :cry:

Whatever you do - BE CAREFUL.
It may not be worth trying to clean with chemicals. My daughter left a crayon in the back seat which actually melted into it. At first it was a small spot. But after trying all the expert remedies, all that happed was that it smeared and spread. If annoys you long enough do what I did. Take it to a local place that can color match it with a dye. It was barely noticable after that and no one else was the wiser that had even happened.
