Water stain on unfinished/raw leather...what to do?

I have this
bag. Like an idiot I spilled sparkling water on the inside, where it appears to be raw untreated leather (the outside is pretty smooth leather). Now there are water stains on the inside.

The color it is stained now on the spots on the inside is just a slightly darker version. I don't think if that color were uniform it would be bad. So is it a bad idea to just dab the inside with a sponge until it is just one big uniform water stain?
Alternatively, I have some wonder balsam
I could use on the inside, but I am reluctant to do that because it says "do not use on suede" and the inside feels kind of like suede to me?
I am reluctant to wash the whole inside with saddle soap, because the outside is pristine and I don't want to mess it up.
Any ideas for what I should do? I know "take it to a professional" is the best answer, but I can't afford that right now :(
