Removing/repairing alcohol stains on leather
June 28, 2010 8:12 AM   Subscribe

Spilled alcohol on a leather recliner and now I have a couple bleached spots on the light brown leather. How can I fix this?

Here is the chair in question (in the taupe color). Rubbing alcohol bleached the color out and there is a couple light (almost white) spots on it. What can I use to restore it? Doesn't have to be perfect, but the white spots are jarringly noticeable. Would also like to treat some scuff marks in a few places that look similar but are not as noticeable.

I haven't personally tried it, but this may be what you're looking for.

I used to use rubbing alcohol followed by black leather dye to remove paint from my punk rock leather jacket, but it wasn't totally seamless and perfect. Because, you know, that wouldn't be punk rock...
