How to remove heel and sole edge dressing from shoes?

My last application got all gummed up and is a sticky, dirt-attracting mess. What can i use to remove it so I can try again?

By the way, that bottle of Kiwi is now in the trash.

Fingernail polish remover is Acetone and a tin of acetone is much cheaper.
Be very careful on the welt because this stuff will remove the finish of the shoes too if you slip.

I'm bumping this old thread in the hopes of a product widely available in Europe. Does anyone know an effective and leather-friendly alternative to Afta?
