How do you remove grease stains from leather Sperrys?
We weren’t able to find any tips about cleaning grease from leather, but we did find a Heloise tip about cleaning grease from a suede jacket – it may help! Removing Grease from Suede By Heloise Question: How can I remove grease from a suede jacket? Answer: Oh! This is not something you want to have to deal with, but I do have a homestyle remedy that you can try before taking it to a professional cleaner who specializes in leather and suede. Take some cornstarch, talcum powder or even artificial sweetener and pat it into the grease spot. Let sit overnight and then brush off. The “powder” should start absorbing the oil. It may take several times to really get most of the grease out. Then use an art gum or very soft eraser to gently brush the area. If this doesn’t work, try out a specialized cleaner. Be sure to look in the phone book under dry cleaners and call first. Good luck!
