How can I stop my leather bag staining my clothes?

I have a swell new leather shoulder bag. I wore it walking for an hour slung diagonally across my chest. It was a warm day leaving a very attractive diagonal line of sweat across my chest and shoulder from the strap. So far, so typical. However, with this new brown bag brown stains were left as well. Is there any way to treat or wash the strap to make sure it doesn't stain again? It is a fairly pricey bag, which I had assumed would mean it would not do this.

Leather + shampoo =?

Shampoo spilled in my suitcase. My leather boots and leather pumps were stained. I tried absorbing the shampoo but the stains are still there. Home remedies? Take to dry cleaner? Cobbler? [more inside]

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. [more inside]

Leather Jacket Staining White Shirts

I've had a black leather jacket for four or five years, and the jacket itself is probably twenty years old. I never had it stain anything until I began wearing white button-up shirts to work, but now I have a bunch of shirts with dirty collars that don't wash out. What can I do? [more inside]

Butter on nubeck leather (suede-like) shoe

Any ideas on how to remove melted butter stain on brand new pair of "nubeck leather" shoes? (Nubeck leather looks a lot like suede, and looks a lot like crap with the butter.) Today was my first day with the shoes and I managed to step in dog dew with one (easy, albeit unpleasant, clean-up) and spill about a square inch worth of butter on the other.... Thanks for any help.
