Cleaning stains off buckskin?

Does anyone have any ideas on how to clean buckskin besides using the white clay ball? They aren't bad stains, just dirt,etc...from alot of use and I can't find that clay ball now. Wondering if there is anything else I can use? Thanks

Try dusting it with Fuller's Earth. The powder absorbs oils, moisture etc. Leave it on for a few hours then brush it off with a soft wire brush.

For the smooth side of the hide, I use mink oil to clean it. Rub it on, wipe it off. The mink oil also helps keep the hide soft and gives it some protection against staining/water.

I'm no expert but I've researched the cleaning of leather. I like to keep it simple. It's skin. What would you use on your skin to clean it? It's probably safe to use that on buckskin. What wouldn't you use on your skin? It's probably better to avoid that.
