I bought a jar of dish soap in bulk, and was so excited. I brought it home and of course it smashed (all over two brand new books, books with school notes, wallet, 3 old national geographics...).
Anyway, the dish soap has done surprisingly little to everything else, but my backpack is now soaked with dish soap. It's a brown leather backpack (roots, if that detail makes any difference). I know it seems kind of dumb to worry about soap staining something, but it seems like it might damage the leather...
Anything I can do to get it out without just causing the entier thing to foam up? Should I even wet it or just let the whole thing dry out?
Thanks, hive mind!
