Jim, Remember the post I made about Mr. Clean Magic Eraser? Get a box and give it a try.Found them at WalMart for 1.88. They work wonders. Took off all the scuff marks I had on the kick panels.

Try it on an inconspicuous area first. If that doesn't work, try the same with Methanol. Test area first.

Get a leather furiture cleaning kit from a furniture store that deals in leather furniture. The basic cleaning kit will probably work, but ask about the about ink (or is it lip stick ) and they will take care of you.

Plain old isopropyl alcohol found over-the-counter in any pharmacy might work. Test it in an inconspicuous area first, though.

Get a paint that matches the leather color.

Maybe a leather repair kit. Talk to a furniture store that deals with a lot of leather. They may have lots of products.

It'll be in the home cleaning area. It'* not actually an auto product.

And Jim, I also posted over there about trying Goof Off or Zippo lighter fluid. Again, inconspicuous area, yadda yadda...

When I was a member of the Handyman Club of America, they recommended Zippo lighter fluid like a magic elixir. Good for stains, paint spills, glue, sniffing... Scratch that last one, sorry...

(Do NOT sniff it!! Very very poisonous!! Don't be stupid, 'kay?)
