Help Remove Grease Stain

Picked up some fast food the other day with my brother and come to find out he had the bag sitting on the seat. The grease from the fries seeped through and now I have a few spots on my WET OKOLE seat covers. I've got the charcoal seat covers and the spots aren't that dark but they are definitely noticeable to me. I'll be picking up the Wet Okole seat care kit this week but was wondering if anyone can recommend something that might help remove the spots.

Get some of the WHITE CREAMY GO-JO and wipe it on the stain and work it in the stain. Don't be afraid to use a good amount. Don't use water. Gojo works without water.

I've used Go-Jo for many years to get black grease outta carpets & clothes. It's gotta work on regular food grease.

I use corn starch or baking soda, dry or as a paste onto spot, let dry & brush off. It absorbs the grease & oil. Sometimes takes a couple of applications but it works.

Will this leave a residue behind? like a spot where it's been cleaned. Thanks for the input I think I'll try this tonight

Not in my cases it hasn't, but its a powder so it can go all over the place. You do not need a lot! (I have made this mistake). I'd use it very sparingly at first, when it starts to cake, brush it off. This has worked great at getting grease gun residue off my ski jacket & oil out of my clothes. I do have the Wet Okole cleaning kit but have never gotten grease on my seat covers. If I did, I would do this treatment then wash them with the WO cleaning agent. Good luck. ps. you can google this treatment for added tips.
