Blot any excess oil from the stain with a washcloth. Apply a small amount of prewash stain remover onto another clean washcloth, then gently scrub the stain using circular motions.
Spread a tablespoon of baking soda on the stain. After a few minutes, put a small amount of dry-clean solvent on the stain and sponge the stain with a washcloth until all of the baking soda is absorbed.
Wash the fabric in hot water. Allow the fabric to air dry, then check that the stain is completely gone. If the stain remains, mix 1 tablespoon of mild detergent and 1 tablespoon of white vinegar with 2 cups of warm water. Dip a soft toothbrush or a washcloth into the soapy water and scrub the stain. Dry the fabric with a clean towel, and inspect the fabric again. Repeat the process until the stain is gone.
