How to Remove Curry Stains From Leather


The proteins found in curry powder bind to whatever they touch, and the spice can discolor fabrics in the same way that a dye will. Leather can be difficult to clean because it reacts temperamentally to different kinds of chemicals. You can remove a curry stain to a purse, car seats or leather jacket, but the cleaning process will take time.

Things You'll Need

  • Vaseline
  • Baby powder
  • Clean cloths
  • Apply a generous amount of Vaseline to the curry stain. The Vaseline will be absorbed into the leather and begin to force the stain out. Rub the area thoroughly with a cloth until the stain begins to disappear.

  • Spray water lightly onto the stain to moisten the area. Do not use too much water or saturate the surface because water will leave its own stain on the leather.

  • Cover the area with baby powder. The baby powder will absorb the remainder of the stain. Let the powder sit for 12 hours.

  • Use a slightly damp cloth to clean the baby powder from the leather. If any of the stain remains, repeat the process.

Tips & Warnings

  • If Vaseline-baby powder process does not fully remove the curry stain, use a leather polish to re-dye the leather.
