Purell Took Color Out of Leather Sofa

An accidental Purell gel spill has taken the color off my brown leather sofa. I tried mopping the spill up with a damp paper towel, but the stain is still very obvious. It looks like a whitish patch on a dark rust/brown leather sofa. Please help! Is there anything I can do to restore the color?

Purell is mostly alcohol-based so I would guess it took the moisture from the leather! I would try washing the area with Murphys Oil Soap or a good leather cleaner & conditioning with a good leather conditioner. You could also try rubbing with a little mayo if you don't have any of these.

If it were me I would try a little bit of brown shoe polish, but on a hidden area first. I really do think it might work though, as it is made to use on leather shoes.
