I've accidentally scratched my pen against my off-white suede handbag, and now there's a very visible, very wobbly blue line across the flap. If anyone knows how to remove ink stains from suede, please leave me a helpful hint here!

Hallo daar! Bij de Blokker hebben ze zoiets als een wonder spons, vierkante sponsjes in een langwerpig pak.
Ik heb daarmee al inktvlekken op een wit leren jasje weten te verwijderen (lees de gebruiksaanwijzing goed).
Maar over suede durf ik geen garanties te geven....

Aw, sweetie, how nice of you to miss me! I'm around, it's just that every day I go to bed and I haven't posted for some reason...

Worth a try, I suppose...Thanks!

't Is echt zo'n dag vandaag waarop alles mis gaat; je kent dat wel - de bus komt te laat, trein gemist, de halve afdeling ziek of op vakantie, drukdrukdruk; iedere client vervelend of heeft iets te klagen, tijdens de lunch laat ik een halve vis op mijn kleding vallen, en nu ik thuiskom begeeft het licht het en blijk ik geen peertjes meer in huis te hebben -- is it Saturday yet?

Too tired to even try to puzzle out B's reply, but I know that rubber erasers can take care of at least some stains on suede. Can't remember if I used for ink spots, though...

See, so tired I can't even construct sentences...

Had to read that several times to spot the flaw, so I wouldn't worry about it! You do know that according to some research, words don't have to be spelled correctly for people to read them properly, don't you? I guess the same holds true for sentences.

Anyway, I was just thinking on the way home that perhaps if I got myself one of those old-fashioned hard erasers, I might be able to take care of that ink stain...Thanks for the suggestion, much appreciated!

:(

I have no idea how it works on suede, but hairspray is supposed to help on fabrics.

I just googled, and found this:

Also saw the suggestion for rubbing alcohol in another place. Isopropol alchohol, if it's not known as rubbing alcohol there. Found at the drugstore.

Hope you find something that works!
