  1. 1

    Blot any remaining liquid with a clean, dry cloth. Do not scrub, just apply pressure and soak up the moisture.

  2. 2

    Mix 1/2 teaspoon of dish soap with a quart of warm water in the bucket.

  3. 3

    Blend vigorously to create an excess amount of suds.

  4. 4

    Use a clean cloth to pick up just the suds and dab onto the stain. Continue dabbing to lift the stain.

  5. 5

    Dry the spot with another clean rag by blotting the wet spot.

Tips and warnings

  • Do not get the leather wet. You want to only use the suds from the soap mixture.
  • Do not scrub the leather. This could ruin its surface.
