How can I remove edding permanent marker from leather?

It’s only possible to remove marking from leather if the surface is smooth and non-porous, e.g. smooth synthetic leather, shoes or sofas.Marking applied with permanent marker can be removed with ethanol, methylated spirit or isopropanol; for marking applied with paint markers, use a benzine cleaner, for example.

We recommend you test on an inconspicuous area first to see if the surface is sensitive to the solvent.
