    Blot the stain with paper towel. Gently rub cornstarch on the area allowing to sit long enough to dissolve the oil.

      Thanks for the suggestion. Have tried that but that does not provide enough cleaning power.

    How about saddle soap? It is very good at removing dirt and oils from my leather saddles and bridles and is a good conditioner for leather. Good luck!

    This method might take a couple of times to clean the leather especially if it's an old set-in stain. Use saddle soap...Open the can, add some water, use a shaving brush to mix. You will want the saddle soap to get foamy first & then apply it to the leather stain, let it sit on the stain for 2-4 mins. wipe away w/ clean soft white cloth. Repeat 2 more times...Allow the area to dry overnight. Repeat the process again if you see any stains you didn't get. When you've gotten the stains removed you will need to condition the leather again because the saddle soap will have stripped the leather of all it's moisture. The best thing to use is Huberd's. You will only need one layer. You can apply it by hand or use a cloth. You will rub it in & wipe off any excess. Hope this helps.
