    While at a company function, someone decided to make a mess out of the chocolate fondue fountain. Unfortunately my shoes were just in the splash radius. Any tips to getting out the stains? The chocolate is now gone, but some dark spots remain.

    Photos would help.
    Take a small dab of toothpaste and apply it to the stain area only. Let completely dry (2 days) then wipe off. The toothpaste should lift the stain and the whitening power of the toothpaste should minimise the appearance of the stain if not remove it altogether. After wiping with a clean damp rag, let the shoes dry again for an hour and apply your leather lotion and polish as usual. NOTE- use only a white tooth paste and not gel. Let us know how things turned out.
