How do you clean a collar on a leather jacket that has body oil on it?

You could sprinkle baby powder or baking soda on the collar, let set over night, and brush well. Repeat if necessary. This works on suede or smooth finish leather. I have done this to get a salad dressing stain of a suede skirt.
If it is smooth finish leather, you could try wiping the collar with baby wipes. Try the wipe in an inconspicuous place to make sure you won't damage the finish. I have done this with leather purses, (including a Coach bag). Hope this helps.

Cornstarch can also be used for this method.
