Removing salt stains from a leather jacket?

To cut a long story short, my lovely leather jacket had an unscheduled dip in the Thames today (I kind of deserved it) and as its drying out, salt stains are appearing :( I've had a google and can't find anything too helpful.

Any tips on removing salt from leather? or is it a goner?

    tablespoon of white vinegar in a glass off water rub on affected area.

    I heard P&G wanted to sign her up to be the new face of Ariel.

    @seanconn - As someone else suggested, dilluted vinegar is the way forward.

    More importantly, we want to know what you I'd to deserve it !!!
    Science adjusts it’s beliefs based on what’s observed.
    Faith is the denial of observation so that Belief can be preserved
