Minks produce an oil that can be used in beauty products. (mink 2 image by Colin Buckland from

Mink oil is made from the layer of fat that sits under a mink's skin. It is used in many beauty products, like body lotions and hair shampoos. When mink oil gets onto leather, it should be removed immediately to keep a permanent stain from forming. Talcum powder can help soak up oil that has seeped into the leather.

Blot at the mink oil stain with a clean, dry cloth.

Sprinkle talcum powder so it covers the entire mink oil stain.

Let the powder sit for four hours.

Wipe off the talcum powder with the cloth.

Spray the stain with hairspray if it has a dark colour to it and wipe off the hairspray with a cloth.
