    Default Ink stains on back seat

    Some idiot must've had a biro in his back pocket when he got in the back of my car last night. I just noticed it and thought it was a wet patch but appears to be dark blue ink. Any tips on removing ink from upholstery??

    Is it dirt devils that do a range of stain removers. I think you might get them from a super market. Or maybe strong APC. But don,t rub too hard as you will get the fabric to get that pilling effect.

    I've used Turtle wax interior upholstery stuff with good results, not on ink but on a heavily stained seat it worked the best out of the spray-scrub type products.

    Tricholrethylene can be used to clean fabric.

    However, due to being toxic, it's now often replaced with another, less volatile, metal degreasing that has very different properties as a solvent, so it might be uneasy to find now.

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys. Autoglym was actually the first thing I tried when I saw the stain and It did make some difference but I didn't want to spread the ink too much. I googled ink stain removal and seems like Acetone, Nail polish remover or White vinegar all work well ....Mmmm my car is gonna smell gorgeous!!!
    If all else fails I'll try some carb cleaner, it works everywhere else on a vectra!
