Try milk, it worked on my leather suite. Just put a little on a cloth dab it on and rub.

spray, but obviously don't use it directly.

Spray onto an MF, try in an inconspicuous area first and then apply - worked on wallpaper when the little one decided to draw a 1cm x 1cm house on it so may work on leather

It may but I wouldn't trust the propellant/solvent not to remove the leather coating

Gently rub some vanish gold onto it with a damp cloth.

It will do the trick  😉

I daresay that special-purpose proprietary products such as Gliptone are ideal but, in an emergency, as would usually be the case, an

alternative would be diluted lemon juice applied in gradually increasing concentrations as deemed necessary until the administration of

a final wipe with alcohol.  And if alcohol is not available, vodka would be suitable.  I picked up this nugget of wisdom, which I hope

never to have to test, from an article on the care and maintenance of leather handbags I was forced to peruse in the absence of other

reading matter in a French doctor's waiting-room, and I remember wondering, as I still do, why logic did not lead the author to recommend

lemon-flavoured vodka as a more efficient two-in-one alternative from the outset.

I am told that old fashioned butter will work

just apply butter on the stain and gently rub it away

did not try myself so no guarantee..

( and make sure to remove all butter before using the seat again..)

It might, but despite best efforts to remove it, I wouldn't fancy sitting on a greasy patch of leather and maybe getting a slightly rancid                                                     odour in my nostrils...

Daft as it sounds a rubber will shift it. A rubber on the end of a pencil should do the trick but ink rubbers are also available.

I am told that a little WD40 works also, but I have not tried it myself.
