  2. This method will work well if the wooden surface is tolerant to heat. Place a blotter paper (such as folded paper towels) over the greasy spot. Press with a warm iron. Repeat until the spot is removed. Keep the temperature of the iron on low as the heat may soften and damage the finish.
  3. Make a thick paste of Fuller's Earth and a commercial dry-cleaning solvent. * Apply to the stain and allow the paste to dry. Brush away the dry residue. Repeat several times if necessary.

* Look for products containing petroleum distillates or hydrocarbon such as trichloroethane, xylene methylenechloride, methane, benzene and/or naphtha. These chemicals may be found in such spot removers and cleaners as Guardsman's Afta, Dap Cleaner and Thinner, GOOF OFF, M-1 Remover, Goo Gone, K2r, etc.

CAUTIONS:

Always pretest each cleaning agent on an inconspicuous area first to determine colorfastness. Test first before applying heat to stain. Some solvents may soften and damage finishes.
