Earlier today I realised my pen was leaking in my pocket. Horror-stricken, I yanked out my red 2007 planner and looked, aghast, at the ink staining on the spine. I guess that's why they usually make them in black. ;)
The ink is regular Lamy blue cartridge ink, but it seems t have bonded with the oil-cloth - I've tried water, soap and water, household cleaner and methylated spirit, and it still won't come off. Does anybody have a secret tip to get ink off a Moleskine cover?
Why do you want to get the ink off? Isn't ink meant to be on a Moleskine? Okay, so it's supposed to be on the pages and not the cover. But really, it adds character to your Moleskine, and shows it is being used. And isn't that what it's all about - using our Moleskines?
Try liquid dishwasher detergent (full strength)- it's the best thing to remove fountain pen ink from one's hands, so worth a try here. I don't know if there will be some negative reaction on the cover, however.
