    I sanded the strops with 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper then applied a few drops of neatsfoot oil; I also applied a bit more to the back of the strop. The stains were gone with the sanding and the oil gave the leather a nice tanish look. The draw is a bit more than before but works very well...again thanks for all the suggestions. HOG

    I have recently used 70% isopropyl to make a strop "slicker" or faster to bring it to where I like it so thought I would add this here.
    Little to no color removal or any detriment to the strop itself.
    Useful for removing wax or topical oil as well.
