Question How do I remove alcohol stains from leather boots?

I spilled clear sambuca on some matte brown leather boots the other day and now they're spotted with dark brown stains. I've tried using mild hand soap, water and a soft cloth to no effect. Any ideas on how to clean this?

Arrow Re: How do I remove alcohol stains from leather boots?

3 parts vinegar to one part water. Moisten a cloth with the solution and dab the area. Let it dry and using a damp cloth, rub saddle soap into the stain until you work up a light lather. Wipe away the lather, let the boots air dry and then oil the boots with mink oil.

Dude you're the shit, the vinegar is already starting to bring the stains out. I'll get the saddle soap and mink oil tomorrow. Thanks!
