I don't know how much difference there is between iodine and neat iodine, if any, but I couldn't find anything on the web about neat iodine stains. However, I did find several sites that talked about removing iodine from various materials. Unfortunately, all of the websites I looked at said since iodine contains a dye, it affects the hide of leather or suede on contact and cannot be removed.

I was able to remove iodine from a high grade leather couch 2 hours after the IODINE stain set in with 91% Isopropyl alcohol, diluted with water and a little rubbing. Worked great!
