Gloss Paint on Leather Seats - SOLVED

If you ever get white gloss paint, or any other colour for that matter, unknowingly transferred from you to the black leather seats in your Discovery and then given time to dry good and proper, try the following.

With a clean cloth, wipe the affected area with extra virgin olive oil to completely remove the gloss paint from the seat and finish off with leather cream. I could not believe how well this worked and not a trace of white gloss paint remains.

Now that is a good tip

Many thanks for that

I had ball pen ink on light coloured Connolly hide - they told me lemon juice would remove it & it did....half a lemon in the car & apply it every few hours over a couple of days
 BREXIT - done properly.

Be warned (slightly OT) but if you do this on a leather chair or setee it will remove all the dye as they are painted. Guess how I know!

Also it will not stop even if they try to reseal it, it will just keep on pealing.

I think it's the settee leather he's talking about, not the remedy. Thumbs Up
