Paint on leather

My neighbour has brought an L200 was previously owned by a painter / decorator. The seats are leather but have paint spots on them. I've tried a few different products but nothing has shifted it.

Furniture Clinic Leather Cleaner
Gyeon Leather Cleaner

Both with a Vikan brush.

Any ideas?

My missus had a small spot of paint on her hand-bag and I was told to dab it with Olive Oil which permeates the paint and allows you to lift if off. We tried it and it removed around 80% of the mark but you could still see the stain. BTW, try to keep the oil off the leather as much as possible.

If that doesn't work, and as a last resort, perhaps White Spirit or Nail Polish remover might do the job but suggest you test it thoroughly on an inconspicuous area first because it may also strip out the colouring off the seat!

HI
You will need a solvent based cleaner to break the paint down on a molecular level, allowing it to be absorbed into a cloth or sponge. I am glad you tried our Ultra Clean, but I would have advised you that that is not strong enough nor is it advertised as being able to remove paint. I would however have recommended using our Leather Stain Remover ... https://www.furnitureclinic.co.uk/Leather_Stain_Remover.

Failing that, the only other option you will have is to colour over the stains. We do also make kits for the DIY market allowing you to do that.
Complete Leather Repair Kit (for areas up to 8-10 inches square): https://www.furnitureclinic.co.uk/Co...her_Repair_Kit
