Stains on a Shearling Handbag

I have a pale pink beige shearling handbag and have just noticed some stains on the outside of the bag. Do not know how long they've been there for. Do not know what the stains are from food, drink, etc. Any tips on what would be safe to try to see if the stains can be removed successfully please.

Is this real shearling leather, or synthetic shearling cloth?

Real leather- use a suede brush and see if the stains will brush off. Try an art gum eraser from the craft store, work the stains over with it and brush away the crumbs. If the stains appear greasy/oily, sprinkle baby powder on them, let sit overnight, and brush well to remove the powder. If you do not have a suede brush, a stiff clean old hairbrush or even an old toothbrush will work.

Synthetic- treat the stains by riubbing in Dawn liquid dish detergent, and wash on the gentle ctcle of your washer. Stuff the purse with crumpled plastic bags to retain its shape, and air dry.
