So sorry to hear about your mishap. I am not aware of any home remedy for ink. You should take your belt to H and see what they can do.

Does your nephews mother have baby wipes? Get to itquick with the non-alcohol type, which is most. Otherwise check DocRide's thread on leather care GL!

Before trying anything you should take it to the local H store. They should be the best people to deal with that.

Hi, So sorry to hear this happened to you....If it's a felt tip or sharpee you are plumb out of luck but if it's from a ball point pen...you may have a good chance...of rescue effort success.
Ball point ink must be removed promptly within the first 48hrs preferably within the first couple of hours...Try a soft white (art or pencil or pen )eraser first see how much you can get off...Try not to rub to hard or you'll lose orange color as well...
There are also ink killers or ink removers but they are quite harsh and you will lose the orange color below when you use them and then you'll have to redye the area...Hermes Orange is a very hard color to match...so I would not advise this route...Good luck...
If all else fails you can always just dye the belt black and cover the problem...and then buy another orange belt to cheer you up.Hugs, doc

I had a pen mark on the front of my Gold Evelyne & I took it to my H store. They sent it off to Paris & a few weeks later I got it back without the pen mark.I was so relieved!I hope you have the same luck!
