    I cut my pinkie somehow and didn't realize it until I got home and took off my shoe. I tried cleaning it with vinegar/water with cloth and even dish soap. All that's done is make the leather dry and hard. Anyone can help me? [​IMG]

    how drunk were you to bleed that much and not even notice it? maybe you could dye the entire boot black.

    I am going to get flay alive for this suggestion, but if you want to risk it, try Shout/Oxy Clean...or just re-dye both shoe.

    Trying hydrogen peroxide and a home made leather conditioner made of vinegar and olive oil. The Hydrogen worked on a small area, waiting for it to dry.

    Tough call but if you just bleed all over the rest of the shoe and it'll even out nicely.

    Seeing as it soaked through, rubbing on the outside probably isn't going to do much.

    I'd probably just soak them in water or something, maybe with soapy water.

    Your boot looks like it's turning into a demon

    I've used hydrogen peroxide to get blood out of suede before. I dunno why you'd use vinegar, usually you use that to set dyes, at least in fabrics.

    I am more worried about your pinkie and not the boot.[​IMG]
