Bronze Post Medal for All Time! 162 Posts

My husband is a teacher. On the first day of school they had a small kitchen fire and the whole school got sent out to stand in a torrential downpour for 20 minutes. There was limited damage to the school, but my husband and his nice leather shoes got soaked!

He set them by the bed and two days later they are fuzzy with mold inside and out. These are his favorite shoes and were quite expensive. What's the best way to permanently remove the mold without ruining the shoes?

There are products for this sold at saddle and tack shops. I have used them and they work. It may take 2 applications.

The post from skins44 was incredibly helpful! Used this idea on my husband's leather shoes and they came out beautifully shiny and clean. Just used an old dry nail brush first, then the Vaseline. Thanks for the most helpful tip.
