  • An art eraser will take off as much as anything else available. It's a lot of manual labour... but it's the only thing I've ever found that works.

    Some things will not come off... salt stains are notorious on leather for being absolutely permanent.

  • Oxiclean is the best way to clean anything! I bought a disgustingly dirty Coach purse at the goodwill for $20...went by the drycleaner and they wanted $50 to clean it. Went home and attacked it with Oxiclean and a brush, I figured "heck, if I ruin it, it was only $20". Well, the purse came out almost brand new, I get compliments on it all the time.
