removing mold stains

I have a saddle that some mold darkened the leather in an area. How can I get it all the same color? Either by removing the dark area or darkening the lighter original areas?

1. Wipe the leather down with a soft, dry cloth to remove all dirt, dust and debris. The leather should be free of foreign particles before the soap is applied.

2. Dip a dampened sponge into the saddle soap and work into a good lather.

3. Rub the saddle soap into the leather. Apply using a tight circular motion until the entire surface is covered.

4. Allow the saddle soap to remain on the leather for just a few minutes.

5. Wipe off the soap using a damp washcloth. Be sure to wipe the leather down thoroughly and that no soap is left behind, as it can cause the leather to dry out and become cracked.

6. Follow the saddle soap wash immediately with a conditioner or leather oil.

Hope this helps,

I read this advice on other forums:

- Vinegar

And if it really refuses to budge: Paint thinner (Then, of course treat the leather with lots of conditioner to counteract the drying effect of the thinner)

This is just what I read,
It may help, it may not,
But I hope it did,
Good luck
