I have spilled Chinese food grease on my light brown leather boots I have two questions:
Does regular flour work as well? And does it matter if it is a light brown leather shoe?

Thanks for help!


Once a stain is in the leathre you cannot get it out. If your leather has taken on a darker appearance try heating with a hairdryer and massaging the area. Clean with a good foam leather cleaner and eventually the stain may blend in.

If you use a good leather protector it will help inhibit this sort of problem in the furture.

1. Blot excess grease with a clean cloth.

2. Sprinkle talcum powder or cornstarch on the affected area.

3. Let sit for at least 4 hours, then wipe off the powder.
