    Goopy stuff on leather?

    Hey guys, I'd appreciate some help on this:

    I bought a bridle and reins set from Ebay...the stuff had apparently been sitting in a box in a warehouse somewhere for awhile, who knows how long.

    So here's my question: The bridle especially has a line of....some sort of sticky ...goop? On it. What can I use to get this off? And what the heck is it?
    It almost reminds me of rings left from the bottom of soda cans...it sort of has that old soda stuck on stuff consistency. I don't want to ruin the leather...what can I use on this stuff that won't destroy it? I have on hand leather care products used on the leather seats in my husband's car (or at least, I should unless he/my kids have lost it X.X), is that safe to use?

    The product for leather seat covers should be safe for your bridle. You could even use Murphy's. What I like to do is lather up my hands and work it into the bridle leather. Rinse and squeeze a cellulose sponge to blot up the moisture and hopefully that product.. Rinse your sponge often and give it a good squeeze - no dripping. Follow this up with blotting with a soft rag. I'm hesitant to say to rub anything as I don't know the quality of the leather. Some pooly tanned leathers will promptly develop a fuzzy surface if lightly rubbed while damp.

    Possibly glue from an old price tag? Try rubbing with some Blutak or use a little oil to remove the glue.
