    Default black leather jacket gets half covered in carpeting glue(?)

    unfortunately i left the jacket lying by a baseboard on the carpet in one of my rooms. there's been a lot of rain in Detroit lately and some water seeped through along the baseboard through the carpet. i am assuming the glue on the bottom of the carpet seeped through the carpet and got on the jacket. i have no idea what else could have caused this weird yellow stuff to be all over the jacket, the carpet is dark grey. there's nothing in the area of the room that is yellow.

    anyway so any place there's yellow on the jacket, it's real stiff now. the jacket itself is an old beater, but it would be nice to possibly get some of this yellow stuff off. i'd like to do it on the cheap if possible.

    any ideas? thanks a lot.

    Does it has a musty smell?

    it definitely has a musty smell where the yellow "glue" is (assuming it's glue)

    Leather Doctor® Kit-A3.mk, leather mold odor killer kit is formulated for mold preventive and decontamination care during storage or after growth. Water damaged leathers and storing in a humid condition promotes mold growth. The presence of mold infestation is detected by its characteristic musty odor and moldy appearance. Mold is a living organism and damages are progressive that timely preventive anti-fungicidal control is preferred over corrective restoration. A progressive mold infestation will result in unsightly sinking pits that may require physical removal with refinishing. When leather is store away, a KillMold-3.6 treatment preserves the leather for a potential period of 8 months. KillMold-3.6 is a waterbased leather-safe non-phenol fungicide formulated to kill mold growth. An effective mold decontamination process would include a preparation cleaning with CleanPro-1.5 and Acidifier-2.0 as rinse prior to KillMold-3.6 treatment. Clean-3.8 with Rinse-3.0 system compliments for lighter soiling. Mold growth draws its nutrients from the leather fat and oil and will need replenishing. Rejuvenating the leather includes hydrating to relax the stick together fibers and to eliminate surface tension with Hydrator-3.3. Fat and oil follows immediately with Fatliquor LS-5.5 to rejuvenate the leather with suppleness and diffusing a classic leather scent. The surface wear of the leather is greatly reduced with a rub-resistant Protector-B+ that also enhances a non-stick buttery-feel to shield against sticky soiling. Note that the mentioned products suffix numbers denotes its pH value in this holistic approach for mold odor preventive and corrective care.
