Whew! Crisis averted-learned some new cleaning info.

So, I have recently bought a rather pricey saddle at an auction, thinking it would be perfect. It was slightly small for me, so......now to try and sell it. I finally have, so I go to the barn to get it to pack it up......and......it has gotten scratched-in the cream seat.......UGH! NOW WHAT??

In total panic mode, I try everything I have. No luck, but dod learn that the blue stain from my jeans can be removed with Rawhide butter. Who knew. So, I head home, still trying to figure out how to tell the buyer. I get home, and one son, who happens to be a hockey goalie who likes white leg pads that are always marked by the black pucks......says to me, like I should know this.....Clean Eraser...Mom that is all you need, then let it dry and condition it again. Hmmm.

Well-It worked! Looks beautiful! So now, in my tack cleaning stuff-Clean Eraser! Fabulous~

Yup! Who knew. It is like super fine sand paper, and I used it damp, then wipe off residue and condition. Took the scratches right out. Amazing.

I can empathize with you on that one. I had a brand spanking new Saddleseat Saddle that a 2 year old did a jig on. I almost cried. No magic eraser will work on that as the leather is actually raised from the shoe dragging across it. This is what happens when you have young ones help you out. Can't scream at them but... it was tempting.

Good discovery on the magic eraser.

I shall have to add that to my repetoire. Inga, this might work. Dampen the leather and be sure to dampen the entire piece to avoid water marks, and rub the back of a spoon on the mark. A horse had made a small chew mark on the fork of a western and I was able to coax the leather back into position and flatten it. Not completly gone but owner was happy.
