When I got oil on a leather bag, I rubbed cornstarch on it with my thumb until it picked up some of the oil (the heat from your fingers and the friction help loosen it up and get it is absorb). If you don't have cornstarch, try baby powder. That worked to lighten it up - at the very least.

Hope that helps!

I had hot buttered popcorn fall on my leather Andrea Breuckner. I was able to get it all out. I used a similar cornstarch method. I plastered on a thick coating of cornstarch and pressed it in. Made it really thick. Then I took a heated lightbulb and warmed the spot for 10 minutes or so. Dustbustered the cornstarch off and then Took an old toothbrush and brushed it out. I repeated this method twice left the cornstarch on overnite the second time and it got it all out and it was a pretty large oily butter stain on washed deerskin leather.
Good luck. Here's my old thread about it.

Don't mean to sound really studpid, but Lexie, when you plastered on thick cornstarch, does that mean you used lots of cornstarch and a little bit of water? If so, I'm just surprised the water didn't affect the results.

Maiga, I'm so glad you brought this question up because I sure learned something new today :idea:

Oh, I'm sorry. I should have clarified. As Kelly says...NO WATER! LOL
Just a thick quarter sized layer of cornstarch.
Also probably the faster you attempt to get the stain out the better the results. I did mine about 3 hours after the event (I had to sit through the movie).
