WD-40 cleans a lot, including grease, dirt, rust stains, and sticky residue.

Ivory bar soap on a damp rag. GREAT for Leather, also & makes your face look good. Frees sticky zippers, for an event free ZIP-UP.

I don't know if saddle soap will get rid of the grime. After its clean, any good leather conditioner should help prevent drying and cracking.

Clean with a damp cloth. Apply black paste shoe polish. Wipe clean.
