How do I delete one item from my downloads list on my Mac (10.6.8)

Posted

I recently downloaded something from a website and it of course showed up in my download list. For some reason I wasn't paying attention and downloaded it a second time. After opening the download I realized I didn't even need the download. I can't remove it from the list. I don't want to hit clear list because I still want a record of the items I have downloaded. Please help if you can.
