Leather stain cleaning?

My dining room chair seats are roofed in leather. Oil was dripped on them, leaving a few dark marks. Am I doomed or is there something I can do besides blotting which did nothing. Any advice?


Best Regards,

There are some chemicals but it's possible to damage the leather. That's why you can use a home made product. Just take some distilled vinegar, 2 spoons of baking soda and than tread it with detergent. After that, wash with warm water.

Best Regards,
hmmm, I think you might be pretty much stuck with them that way. You can try some harsh leather cleaners but you will probably do more damage than the oil. I have a white leather lounge and yes, some marks will never come out.

Probably the best way is to upholster it again if nothing works
