Cleaning Patent Leather

Does anybody know how to get stains out of patent leather? I have what appears to be a dye stain from the red trim of my tan handbag. Thank you!

Polishing Patent Leather Shoes

As "Mr. Conductor" on the PA Trolley railway south of Pittsburgh, PA, I invested in a pair of old-style shoes to go w/my old time uniform. Working on a railway means never being 100% clean. Getting off the trolleys on the rural tracks or holding the many children and ladies for photos, leaves the polished shoes worn day after day. A tiny bit of Olive Oil helps them stay spiff-n-shiny for all of you--my public. Important--no oil on the bottoms of the shoes.

Try nail-polish remover. (08/14/2007)

Cleaning Patent Leather

I have a white purse with yellow stains. The purse is patent leather. Neither Clorox, mineral spirits, nor alcohol will take out the stain. Is there some solvent I can use that may minimize the stain without ruining the patent leather? (02/27/2008)

Cleaning Patent Leather

Vaseline helps keep shine as well as petroleum jelly, and wash with warm water to keep appropriate moisture levels. (10/09/2008)
