How to Remove Ballpoint Pen Ink from Fabric Car Upholstery in Acworth, GA; Best pH for Cleaning & More

Was your car’s upholstery a recent victim to a little mischief maker? Our kids have a way of getting into trouble especially when you are focused on driving. When your child finds a pen or marker and begins drawing on your vehicle’s upholstery, you may wonder what you can do. Ink on upholstery can be removed but you want to make sure you clean the upholstery right. Carpet Dry-Tech will share how to remove ink from the upholstery in your vehicle.

DIY Methods for How to Get Ink Out of Car Upholstery

When you have ink stains on your car’s upholstery, one product we recommend is “Goof Off.” Goof Off has been proven to loosen and dissolve ink from surfaces, including upholstery. You can find Goof Off at most hardware stores such as Lowe’s or Home Depot. If you decide to give this cleaning product a try, then when using it you will want to wear latex gloves and have the vehicle door open while using it. After cleaning the ink stain roll down the windows while the upholstery dries to keep the inside of the vehicle properly ventilated. To properly use Goof Off, apply the cleaner to a microfiber towel and wipe back and forth for about a minute. The ink will fade and dissolve away. However, after using this product the chemical will remain in the upholstery. To remove the remaining chemical you will want to rinse the site with plain water and use a shop wet vac to suck the water up and out of the upholstery. If you have a carpet and upholstery steam cleaning machine you can also use that to remove the chemicals in the upholstery.

Get Car Interior Professionally Cleaned & Ink Stains Removed

Ink is one of the tougher types of stain that can occur on upholstery. For those who find they would rather not attempt to remove the ink themselves, seek professional services. A professional vehicle interior cleaning service not only will remove the ink stain but clean the upholstery, carpet and fabric floor mats as well. The entire interior can be cleaned. A professional has all of the equipment already on hand. Not everyone is ready to invest in a quality steam cleaning machine or even a wet/dry shop vac to properly clean the interior of their vehicle. To remove stubborn stains, and for a more thorough deep cleaning, consider seeking a vehicle interior cleaning service.

Use Best pH for Cleaning

It is important when cleaning a car’s upholstery that you use the proper pH levels. Too high of a level can damage the upholstery and cause the upholstery’s color to fade. Additionally, there are different types of material and fabric used for the car’s upholstery. You must know how to clean each type of upholstery correctly to prevent ruining it. This is another reason why you should seek out a professional service. We know all the upholstery types and the best methods to clean each of them.
