    Yes baby wipes. No for the magic eraser - that is like fine sandpaper - it will ruin the leather.

    just take that $175 bucks and take it to a leather cleaner. Why risk anything just let a pro do it. It would be less than $40. It would be free money well spent.

    What is this "Winter" of which you speak? DRL, you ever heard of this "Winter?"
    Maybe he means around Thanksgiving when we can turn the air conditioner off for a few months and wear long pants. That must be what he means by "Layering." Long pants over boxers.[​IMG]

    I bought at least 3 fall/winter coats for myself over the summer. Enough with this heat nonsense.

    My father lives on the Mississippi gulf coast. He used to always call me on Christmas to rub it in when he went jogging while I was shivering in Missouri/Kansas. His house has a fireplace. I never could figure that out.

    Growing up, it was always said that we have 3 seasons in Texas: Summer, Rodeo, and Hunting. Holds true for South/Central TX mostly, but now that I'm a little further North, I actually get to enjoy some cooler weather in the winter month. Still wish it were more than a month though...

    I cant wait to bust out the long coats, polo coats, shearlings, leathers, down jackets, not to mention the big chunky sweaters and flannel pants, tweed, colorful scarfs, hats and thick soled boots. Of course nobody likes extended periods of -60 windchills, but the fall season, to a lesser extent, spring, and all the wonderful clothes that go along with them totally makes it worth it.

    This past winter, I was the only person on my block with a snow shovel made of metal...
