Help! My Kid Just Colored All Over My Honda Vehicle’s Leather Seats with a Sharpie! How Do I Get it Off?!?!

How to Remove Sharpie Ink from a Honda Vehicle’s Leather Seats 

We were just scrolling through Facebook when we saw a shared post of a vehicle’s leather seats covered in scribbles from a pink Sharpie marker. Now we know that kids can be quite the troublemakers and think that coloring our vehicle’s seats will make them pretty, but to be honest, it would break our hearts if the leather seats in our expensive vehicle were ruined. Luckily, there are some ways to clean that Sharpie ink off those leather seats.

Hand Sanitizer or Rubbing Alcohol 

These two products are favorite choices for parents whose kids found the Sharpies. Just pour some onto a rag, work it in, and then start scrubbing your leather seats. 

Dry Erase Board Cleaner 

We found this hack in the comments section of the mentioned Facebook post. The writer said to just spray it onto the leather seat, let it work its magic for about a minute, and then wipe it away with a damp cloth. 

Distilled Vinegar 

Using a 1 White Vinegar : 2 Water ratio is a great way to remove Sharpie ink from leather. Put some of the mixture on the ink, let it sit for a couple of minutes, and then wipe it away with a damp cloth. Please note that it is never a good idea to put pure vinegar on the interior surfaces of your vehicle because it can ruin them.
