Expanding Foam On Skirt and Shoes

When doing a craft project recently, I managed to spill some expanding foam onto my black cotton shirt and black leather shoes. I tried wiping it off and picking it off when it dried, but no success. Does anyone know how I can fix these items? Please help, they're my favourite shoes and shirt!

The shoes - find a good cobbler. Seriously. Check in the phone book. I'm betting there's one you didn't know about who would charge you about $4.00 to 'buff' that stuff off and give them a nice shine at the same time. Don't forget to take the other shoe - otherwise, you'll have a different issue.

The skirt - freeze it first, then 'break' off any residue. Remember what happens to regular foam when it's cold, it gets very brittle. Then I would go buy some dry-cleaning solution (just a "Dryel" replacement bottle if you don't want to buy a whole Dryel kit). I've found that to be very miracle working.
