How to Remove Chocolate Stains From Leather

Save

When chocolate touches a surface, it melts almost immediately, leaving behind a stain. Leather that has been stained with chocolate must be treated in a special way. The most important thing is to remove as much chocolate as possible before applying a stain remover.

Things You'll Need

  • Blunt knife
  • Ice cubes
  • Plastic bag
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tsp. liquid dish soap
  • Sponge
  • Cloth
  • Fill a plastic bag with a few ice cubes.

  • Put the bag on top of the chocolate. This hardens the chocolate, which will make it easier to remove.

  • Take the blade of a blunt knife and scrape off as much chocolate as possible. Be careful not to slice into the leather.

  • Pour 1 tsp. liquid dish soap into 1 cup water. Dip a sponge into the mixture and dab at the stain until it comes off.

  • Rinse off the soap with water, and dry the area with a cloth.
