What product is necessary to remove mildew or mold from leather?

Removing Mildew Or Mold

Mildew or mold can be removed from leather in the same way ink is removed. A “spot test” should be performed to first test the leather material. Next using a damp cloth, and an equally mixed solution of isopropyl alcohol and water, wipe the area where the mildew or mold is located. Allow the leather material to air dry away from direct sunlight.
