How can I remove paint/glue from leather

Recommended Posts

I recently had to replace my windshield and a day after I got the car back I noticed this stain on the bottom part of the steering wheel:


I suspect it is glue or some kind of paint (?) that droped during the windshield replacement. I am not sure how to remove this without damaging the leather. Any ideas?

When you have to remove paint/glue whatever from any delicate surface like leather, always start with the mildest cleaners and then go to stronger ones if you have to. That said, I would cover the area around the spot with masking tape to keep the cleaners that you use off the rest of the wheel. Put an old towel down over the driver's seat and dash. I would start with a commercial leather cleaner, but test it in some out of the way place first. A big white spot on your steering wheel is going to look really bad. Try different products like Goo-Gone and other mild solvents, if leather cleaner doesn't work. It's always best to test on a hidden area first.

Check with the windshield shop and see what they used to glue in the windshield and get some solvent for that. If you do bleach out the leather getting the spot out there is a great product called Leatherique made in the USA which will restore the color. Good Luck.
