How to remove chocolate stains from leather
Chocolate can leave a stain on leather. (chocolate pudding with chocolate curls in a martini glass image by David Smith from Fotolia.com)

When chocolate touches a surface, it melts almost immediately, leaving behind a stain. Leather that has been stained with chocolate must be treated in a special way. The most important thing is to remove as much chocolate as possible before applying a stain remover.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Fill a plastic bag with a few ice cubes.

  2. 2

    Put the bag on top of the chocolate. This hardens the chocolate, which will make it easier to remove.

  3. 3

    Take the blade of a blunt knife and scrape off as much chocolate as possible. Be careful not to slice into the leather.

  4. 4

    Pour 1 tsp liquid dish soap into 1 cup water. Dip a sponge into the mixture and dab at the stain until it comes off.

  5. 5

    Rinse off the soap with water, and dry the area with a cloth.
