Leather book covers, which protect books from dirt, often get dirty themselves. Ink stains are especially common. Both nail polish remover and rubbing alcohol can effectively remove ink from leather.
Using a cotton swab, lightly blot the ink stain. Avoiding rubbing, because this spreads the ink stain. Continue blotting with nail polish remover or alcohol until the stain disappears. Wipe the leather clean with a damp cloth, and dry it with a soft towel.
Baking soda can help remove grease and oil stains from leather. Sprinkle a small amount of baking soda on the stain and lightly rub in the baking soda with a damp cloth. Over the next few hours, the baking soda will absorb the grease or oil. Wipe off the baking soda with a soft cloth.
