What would you use to clean what looks to be a faux leather-like rectangle on the sideboard of the cabinet? .......Thanks,

If it is not leather, try a foam cleaner(fabric spot cleaner) or you can take dish soap and a little water and sponge. Dip the sponge in the soap mixture and massage several times until the sponge is very foaming but not dripping wet and rub lightly. The only problem with the old faux leather is they are sometimes not color fast so if you see a lot of color on the sponge stop. So test a small spot first. If it bleeds on the sponge, take corn starch and sprinkle thickly covering the whole thing and let set for several days then vacuum off. I really could use a good picture. If it turns out to be real leather I have a potion for that two. Glenn[/quote]
Pictures on my agenda for this weekend - it definitely isn't just old crazed or built up finish - actually set into the wood.
I'll see if I have any foam fabric cleaner stashed, too.
Thanks for your help again Glenn!
