    Add clear liquid dish soap to a bowl of water. Mix well.

    Dampen a cloth with the sudsy water mixture.

    Rinse and wring out the cloth so that there is no soap left on it.

    Wipe the remaining soap off the surface of the leather with your cloth.

Tips and warnings

  • Warm water works better than cold water for removing the stains.
  • Don't scrub the leather hard with the dampened cloth. Instead, use short, vigorous medium weight strokes.
