Nail polish remover with acetone has been spilled on my medium brown leather couch and it completely removed the color finish. The spill is about 1 inch wide by 1 inch long. Can this be repaired, or do I put a throw blanket over it and just learn to live with it?

I used paste shoe polish on my dark brown leather furniture and it covered a spot nicely. Also, they make leather dye for home use. Check with a good leather furniture store. (07/28/2009)
To do it right, contact a shoe or saddle repair shop, as they will have actual leather dye and can help you put it back correctly. Or a Tandy Leather store, and it will probably be a two step finish to restore both the color and the shine. Good luck! (07/30/2009)
