Have you tried washing it? You may, and I say may here, be able to
wash it in a mild solution of soapy water, that will get the oils out,
but you need to be aware that it may, ruin the belt, depending on the
type of leather it is. That is why I asked you in the prior email to
call me, or email me on the side. Since you didnt respond , I will
post the answer here for all to know now, as it may help someone else
in that need.
