You can spot clean leather or suede by carefully rubbing the soiled area with an artist's eraser. A stain on leather that won't brush or wipe off should be taken to a leather cleaner as quickly as possible. Though you can try cleaning it yourself with a leather-cleaning product, you may end up doing more harm than good. You can protect both leather and suede articles by spraying them with a silicone spray that you can purchase at most shoe stores.
