Our family room couch has a stain, about 6-8" in diameter. We know what cause it, a family member who was recovering from surgery laid on it, and the incision was oozing through the bandages. It isn't blood, just seepage of some sort.

Our attempts to clean it up using leather cleaner and then baking soda haven't made a bit of difference. Now we're thinking of trying a leather dying kit, such as this:

I realize we'll have to go darker than the original buff leather color, but am wondering if anybody has successfully attempted this.

You might want to give a professional furniture cleaning service a try. We had some staining on our leather sectional and they were able to remove the stain that we couldn't get out. Before doing a "point of no return" type thing like dying the leather, this might be worth investigating. Good luck!

I agree with HWTechGuy. I saw a neighbor's buff-colored couch that had a bad stain from a pet. It had been there for years and they decided to call a professional cleaning service (I think it was Stanley Steemer) to get it out. I would have bet no one could remove such a dark colored stain so well, but, after the cleaning service did its magic, you truly could not see where the stain had been.

That's who did ours.

Thank you both! It certainly sounds like it would be worth a try.
