How to remove savon noir from leather?
posted by TrixieRamble to Home & Garden (4 answers total)
I just received a package of wonderful Morroccan gifts, including a teal leather "poof" footstool-like thing and a jar of savon noir. Unfortunately the jar had cracked and the soap leaked on the leather. Google does not provide a conclusive answer regarding what's in the soap but it seems to be made of oils rather than detergent-like substances. Any tips on how to remove it from the leather?
When I wiped off the excess soap with a paper towel, it lifted a little of the teal dye, so it's clear the leather isn't color-fast. The soap stain is in a very visible spot so I'll have to be careful. Thank you!
