Tuesday Tip: Use Cornstarch to Remove Oil from Leather
This isn't really a cooking tip, but I learned it as a result of a cooking accident. My friend got peanut oil on her favorite leather boots while helping to deep fry a turkey. She feared that the boots were ruined, but we turned to Google and learned to dump (not sprinkle, dump) a generous amount of corn starch into the stains. The corn starch absorbed the oil. You might need to repeat this process for a few days - but it works.
