How should I clean a sheep skin leather jacket? My black leather jacket (sheep skin) has been stained by house paint dust and 1 small drop of paint. I don't know how to take it out without a mark left behind. Please help. Thank you.

You must be very careful cleaning it. I have a coat made of 100% sheepskin and know how hard it is to clean. You need to buy a leather and suede brush and spot eraser. They sell them in some supermarkets, and they will have them in any shoe store or shoe repair shop. That is the only thing I can think of that won't distroy your coat. Other than that, you will need to take it to a furrier.

I have my wonderful leather jacket that I love to wear all the time. But, it has this pink paint stain on it.
How do I clean white paint off a leather jacket? I don't know what kind of paint it is.
Try using plain isopropyl alcohol. If it is latex (or acrylic) is should help in dissolving the paint. I dropped some lime green acrylic on a good pair of Levis and didn't notice it until the next day.
