Wow this is what this website says: http://www.srfabrics.com/care/stain.htm

I’m guessing that lava soap?

 

Oil & Grease

Scrape away as much as possible with a spoon. Place stain on a clean, white cotton rag. Spray with WD-40 (available at hardware stores), and rub from the top with another clean rag. Flip over and spray stain from other side. Continue to flip, spray, rub and move to a clean area of the rag until the stain is removed. Treat the edges of the WD-40 circle the same way to remove as much migrated material as possible. Soak in an enzyme pre-soak and then launder as usual. Drip dry and evaluate before putting in dryer.


Another method is to use a mechanics hand cleaner (available at auto parts stores), gently rubbing it into the stain with a tooth brush. Follow with an enzyme pre-soak and then launder as usual. Drip dry and evaluate before putting in dryer.
For dry clean materials, treat with WD-40 as above, and take to the dry cleaners. Tell them you were greasing your 1956 Pickup..
