Always remember to start the stain removal process while the clothing item is dry! If there's any oily residue, dry it off with a paper towel.

Sprinkle some baking soda on the oily area, and leave it on for about 24 hours.

Once a day has passed, brush off the excess, get your trusty dish soap out, we reccomend dawn! Spray the affected area with vinegar and water. Dampen the spot, press on that dawn, and scrub it out! 

Dish soap, and vinegar break down the enzymes, leaving you a brand new sweater, t-shirt, etc.
